I do love this kind of research where you can find out information about everyday people through their online genealogy records (census/military/directories etc).
Even about total strangers - it's all interesting to me :)

Hi Debbie, thanks for the comment. I subscribed to your Franklin Co., IL, obits page since I have ancestors who lived in southern Illinois (mostly Saline, Gallatin, Pope and White counties). Like you, I'm interested in the lives of total strangers, too!
