The Eastland Disaster, July 23, 1915, Chicago River, Chicago, Illinois

The Eastland Disaster, July 23, 1915, Chicago River, Chicago, Illinois

Is it really a coincidence that after several months of not participating in the FamilySearch indexing project, I should be prompted to get back into the swim of things?  I was indexing these deaths when I realized that I should probably look more closely at the names.  Perhaps one of them is linked to my husband's family, some of them who lived in Indiana and worked in Chicago.

Whether or not that turns out to be true, at the very least, it is peculiar that I should begin my return to indexing with this batch of records, almost exactly 100 years to the day of the accident.
