100routes - Route your Roots
This project, on the Armenian Genocide Centennial, is dedicated to the memories of the 1.5 million Armenian families that lost their lives in 1915. The descendants of these survivors can now be found in the four corners of the Globe, forming communities, building churches, and founding schools. This interactive site aims to collect all of these journeys by mapping the dispersal paths of Armenian families in the years following their expulsions from their ancient homelands. As descendants of these survivors, You can trace our roots by inserting:
- Your name/family name (or choose to remain anonymous)
- Your family’s point of Origin in the Armenian Highlands - Հայկական լեռնաշխարհ / Anatolia
- Search for up to 4 cities where your family members have resided over the last century. If your desired city isn’t in the list, please choose the closest large city to it.
- Compare your family’s journey with that of other users!
