Introduction to “No Stone Unturned” 1000-plus Questions Series

Over 20 years, I have had the opportunity to conduct hundreds of interviews that included family, friends and others in preparation to write personal/ family histories and individual stories.   I like to approach histories from the point of view of topics/events in the life’s of those whom I am writing about.  I have pondered, brainstormed, researched, developed and organized the questions into topics that have formed the outline for interviews and writing histories/stories.   I have referred to these category topics as “No Stone Unturned” questions meaning that I wanted to make sure that I looked at each topic from as many angles as possible.  There are 89 categories and 1,000-plus questions.  You don’t have to ask every question, but you can determine whether you want to address the question in an interview or the history/story you are writing.
