Under the auspices of the European Union Getting to Know Europe Grant, the UF Center for European Studies is collecting ancestral photographs of Florida families taken on the European Continent. The Center is compiling an online, open-access photography archive to digitize and preserve this part of Florida's rich history of immigration. This site and these images are the visual representation of Florida's connection to the EU through its shared citizenry. 

Do you have photos of your European ancestors? We are looking for picturesque images and photographs that tell the story of heritage, emigration, military service, travel and scholarship taken in Europe before 1999. If you would like to digitize your photos and email them to us, that would be greatly appreciated. We are also more than happy to collect your photos, digitize them in Gainesville and return the originals to you.

To submit your photographs, please contact:
