Family storytelling has been a topic given increased attention recently, although research comparing family stories among different ethnicities is limited. This study investigated the differences in the family story experience among three families of different ethnicities: Caucasian, African-American and Hispanic The research focused primarily on family members’ perceptions of family story functions and roles and how these families differed in those perceptions. The findings are discussed, and the families’ experiences are examined in terms of ethnicity.
