"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)

9. I’m afraid I won’t know how to answer or that I’ll get emotional. What can be done about that?

Well, you are not alone with those thoughts! The nice thing about your project is that if you don't like an answer, or if you'd like to re-answer (even multiple times) a question then we simply include your best response. The responses you don't like are discarded.

Emotion in a response is a good thing! Nearly everyone we have interviewed has some emotion in their response to particular questions... it lets others know that they are human! However, we use emotion tastefully, and you have the final say as to whether or not your response is included in the video.
