The latest: Matt Borowicz

Matt helped me last Tuesday morning when I was trying to find an obituary from the Christopher, Illinois area about my great-grandfather, who died in 1926.  I knew the exact date of his death, and Matt helped me locate nearby newspapers.  There wasn't a Christopher newspaper, but the Zeigler News and Benton Evening News both had the obituary in their papers.  Matt suggested these other papers, something I never would have thought of myself.  I'm doing genealogy research, and this was an eye-opening article for me.  Of course, it leads to MORE questions about my great-grandfather.  I traveled to southern Illinois for the long weekend to do my research, staying through Wednesday, and this piece of research really paid off.  I wanted to make sure you know how much I appreciated Matt's assistance.
