How to get started


Decide who you will interview? 

You can interview anyone. 

You can invite a loved one, or anyone else you’d like 

to get to know better or honor. Listening is honoring. 


Arrange a time when both you and your interview partner will be relaxed,
and choose a quiet, comfortable place where you won’t be interrupted. 


You can choose to ask questions from our suggested list or create your own.
We suggest that the interview take between 30 - 45 minutes, using 4 to 6 questions. 


Plan your questions

Below are some suggested questions for any interview.


  1. Can you tell me about one of your happiest memories in Gloucester?

  2. Is there someone who was a bigger than life that influences your life here?

  3. Were there challenges living here?

  4. Could you tell a story about growing up here? 


Begin your interview.


Ask a few starter questions. 

How are you today? 

Where were you born? 

How long have you lived in Gloucester?
