ABC News will be the project’s exclusive media partner, over the course of a year, the network will feature programming featuring the findings, research, and work of the project. They will produce “impactful and informative storytelling and reporting” across all of ABC’s platforms. The public has already been invited to explore the website, where a number of resources are available, and more will be added regularly. In addition, the site encourages visitors to submit original family materials like family trees, copies of diaries or records, bible records, or interviews with family members to help build the database. ABC News President Kim Godwin describes their excitement, “ABC News is proud to be the exclusive media partner on this historic project to tell the untold stories of familial histories that have been a mystery until now, and we are looking forward to serving our audiences with straightforward reporting that shines a light on this chapter in American history,”
