Since 1993, the Getting Word staff has traveled more than 40,000 miles, interviewing descendants all over the United States, from Alabama to Ohio and Massachusetts to California. More than 170 people have contributed to this treasure house of memories, providing a rich oral history for future generations. 

Your financial support can help the Thomas Jefferson Foundation continue to tell these important stories.  For more information on how you can contribute to the Getting Word project, please contact:
