Document Greenwich

Help us document this extraordinary time in history as we collect materials, photos and stories that speak to our shared experience during the coronavirus pandemic. Photographs, journal entries, letters, emails, instagram posts, news clippings, poetry or reflections on the sense of isolation, uncertainty, hope, gratitude, unanticipated joy, or fear paint a picture of the human experience in this unprecedented time.  Our archival collection will tell a story of life in Greenwich in 2020- tell us yours. We’d like to hear from a variety of perspectives- young and old, from all parts of town, and in all different circumstances.

A few important caveats…

We want everyone to be safe and healthy. Don’t do anything that would expose you or others to potential infection. Follow all applicable health guidelines and practice social distancing!  For now, all items should be in digital format.  If there are physical items that you think are relevant, set them aside for now and we can arrange a time to bring them in for review by Christopher Shields (cshields@greenwichhistory.org) Curator of Library and Archives, when the present crisis is behind us..

Note that, upon review, and your signed approval, these submissions would become part of the public collection of the Greenwich Historical Society and would be freely available to all researchers going forward.

Thank you for partnering with the Greenwich Historical Society in this important effort.
