May they share their stories and rest in peace. By investigating words and symbols etched in local tombstones, local historian Tracy Reinhardt opens the door to the sometimes-tragic, fascinating lives of Fond du Lac settlers in If Stones Could Talk at 2 p.m. and repeated at 6 p.m. Thursday, November 15, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The History at Home program is free; no registration required.

Reinhardt was born and raised in Fond du Lac County and has been collecting stories of family and early Fond du Lac history for more than 40 years. She is library director/archivist for the Fond du Lac County Historical Society.

The library’s History at Home series focuses on stories about the area’s past every third Thursday of the month at 2 p.m. and repeated at 6 p.m. (no program in December). Many History at Home programs are captured on video and shared on the library's YouTube channel; the link can be found at
