Our Grandparents: UMEI Student Interviews

This is a collection of born-digital biography writing by students in Joel Warkentin’s Religious Studies class at UMEI Christian High School in Leamington, Ontario, Canada.

Each year, UMEI students visit EKMHA's Heritage Centre to interview seniors about their lives. Over a series of visits, they listen, record, draft, and rewrite the life stories of Mennonites living in our community.

Since 2016, we've been sharing some of these biographies online.

To learn more about the histories of the Mennonites in Essex and Kent Counties visit the ogranization's website at www.ekmha.ca
