Chicago, Chicago, that toddling town.
Husband and I recently enjoyed four fun-filled days in the Windy City.
We visited with family and friends, played tourist, explored new-to-us genealogical repositories.
And we photographed headstones – lots and lots of headstones.
Packing for this trip was challenging. Pre-travel weather reports forecast rain and cold. We created Plans B, C and D just in case, and we prayed for nice weather. On the second day our prayers were answered, but I digress.
Day one was overcast and slightly drizzly. Perfect for driving a long distance.
Our first stop was the Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin Illinois. Stay tuned for details about this amazing resource and the family history treasures I discovered there.
