  • Cultural Heritage Project
  • Hi! My name is Aaron Shyer and this is the story of my cultural heritage.
  • My dad and I talked about where our family descended from and how we immigrated to the U.S.
  • Here's what I learned...
  • 1907 Russia
  • My Great-Great Grandparents
  • Hey Pauline, everyone is immigrating out of here, do you think it would be a good idea for us to?
  • Yes Max! That sounds like a great idea!
  • They took a boat from the U.K. to NYC in 1907 and built the Shyer family there for the next 100 years
  • My great grandparents took a train to the U.K. and lived there for a couple of years.
  • They lived there for a couple of years and had their 8 kids before deciding to immigrate to the U.S.
  • I also had Great-Grandparents who lived in Poland during WWI and fled to the U.S. to get away from the harsh environment. They also took a boat to NYC and made a new life for themselves.
  • Wow! I never knew that our family came from Russia and Poland! Thank you so much for sharing those stories about our heritage.
  • Of course Aaron! Good luck with your project!
