Trying to find our roots

Dear reader,

Today in print, we published a very nice column by the Chicago Tribune’s John Kass, who writes about a visit to his ancestral home in Greece. (You can find the column here.)

Las Vegas is a young town filled with people from all over the world. Whether home (or the ancestral home) is Greece or upstate Pennsylvania, where do you come from? Do you have a story about finding your family roots or going home?

We’d love to hear it. It doesn’t have to be long or complicated. Send a letter to: Going home c/o Letters to the editor, Las Vegas Sun, 2360 Corporate Circle, Third Floor, Henderson, NV 89074. Or email: and put “Going home” in the subject line. We’ll publish some of your stories in an upcoming issue.



Matt Hufman is assistant managing editor/opinion.

  1. This seems like a very interesting subject (finding roots) about every American who's family came from somewhere else. We all have different family backgrounds and history that would be very nice to read about from people willing to share their story.
