Do we need money to do this?

We are interested in finding, organizing, and sharing our materials at the community-level. How do we get started?
Your community needs advice and tools. ICAP is here to help you.
Am I able to gather any of these materials and identify them? (i.e. people, places, dates)
Most likely. It’s a question of locating what you have and identifying the persons, places, and dates involved for each piece. As an individual, you may need to talk to your immediately family and friends to do so. Senior family members and friends may be especially invaluable to you. ICAP is here to help you.
Are any of our family’s photos, artistic creations, letters, business documents, (or similar) of interest outside our family?
Absolutely. Some of your items may be the missing link in understanding past experiences in the Italian-Canadian narrative. ICAP invites you to Tell us what you have.
Am I aware of my family’s history and is it important?
You may not be aware of the importance of knowing and sharing your family’s history as a rich and exciting contribution to Canada’s social history. It is our everyday stories that link us together and represent a shared experience and common narrative. ICAP is here to help you.
