Documenting COVID-19 Experiences in Louisville and the Ohio River Valley
COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus, has become a global pandemic. Schools have moved online, tens of thousands have lost their jobs, health care professionals are working around the clock, and statewide stay at home orders keep many individuals and families isolated for the safety of the community.

History is being made and staff at the Filson Historical Society want to hear from you. We are collecting journals, diary entries, letters, emails, photographs, and other ephemera in digital and physical formats to document the experience of Louisvillians and folks from the Ohio River Valley impacted by the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19. Please consider answering these few questions about how the pandemic is affecting your life. Your story will contribute to the broader history of Kentucky and the Ohio River Valley during this turbulent time, preserving our experiences for generations to come.
