Stamps help people connect with their homelands and those of their ancestors. Most Americans are descended from immigrants. Stamps from their ancestral homelands offer deep insights into family stories and heritage, and have much to teach about the history and culture of those countries. Some people collect stamps of their ancestral homelands. Share your stamp collecting story!
