"Stories from Silence" (Elkhart History - Part 2)


The cemeteries of Elkhart, Indiana (and nearby) have never before been documented in this way. The art, poetry, history, and stories come alive again thanks to a tour by local historian, Paul Thomas, and genealogist, Pat Johnson. Paul is the founder and curator of Elkhart's "Time Was Museum". Pat and a friend have documented and published several volumes of books indexing burials in the city cemeteries and most county cemeteries. These books can be found at any local library, at the Elkhart County Historical Museum, and also at the "Time Was Museum".

ill titleFrequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

8. I don’t have an interesting story. What do I talk about?

That's what they ALL say... "I don't have an interesting story." We can tell you that without exception EVERYONE has an interesting story! You don't have to be famous to have a great story.

After our preliminary "getting to know each other" meeting we will compile a list of questions for you (or the person who will be interviewed). You can use the list to change, add, or delete questions if you wish. The final list becomes the basis of the personal interview. During the interview we may also ask a followup question if the response sounds like there are additional interesting elements.

We will conduct the interview in a way that the person being interviewed feels relaxed and comfortable so they may give an honest response in their own words. We will not ask leading questions to solicit a particular response.
