Click here for step-by-step instructions on registering for Americans All and creating a legacy story. You may want to print some of our tutorials for reference. By creating a “New User Account,” you establish a personalized “Welcome Back” page with links to all program benefits. If privacy is an issue, insert initials, rather than your names, in the “Name*” fields. We only identify our members by their e-mail address (which they use to log in), and their Zip Code (which we use to count how many members are registered in each geographic area). Importantly, we do not share or publish contact information or store financial information.
Our mission is to house one of the most comprehensive and non-political databases (in multiple languages) of individual, family and group stories, past and present, about the ”Peopling of America.” Our storytelling tool is an ideal vehicle to help focus on our population's commonalities rather than its differences. By sharing stories, we can all recognize the contributions of every citizen, while reinforcing the values of diversity and respect, and promoting tolerance, empathy, acceptance and understanding. Stories can contain text (part of which can be password protected), photographs, home movies, and hyperlinks to web text and audio-visual media. Stories can also be published in multiple languages.
Your registration creates a free, lifetime membership in Americans All. After you start creating your story and have either “saved” or “published" it (the story does not have to be completed in one session), you are automatically registered for our program and receive a 3-month free trial to our optional Social Legacy Network, which enables you to receive discounts from our program’s business partners.
Legacy stories reflect members’ views, and we do not vet these stories. Because stories can unintentionally contain information about the people in the narrative that may be inappropriate or potentially harmful, we recommend that young adults have their story reviewed by a parent, guardian or teacher before it is published. Moreover, we comply with the “Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act” (Public law: 105-277), which requires parental consent if children under 13 share information that can be obtained on the Internet.
If you are creating a membership for yourself, use your e-mail address. If you are creating a membership by acting as an agent (point of contact) for a business, school or other nonprofit, use the organization’s email address. From a link on your “Welcome Back” page, first create their Legacy Partner (or school) page before registering them for Americans All and creating their story for the Heritage Honor Roll. If your role is an agent, you can always set up a personal account by logging in again and using your own email address.
