German search site ... and a domestic database I found

It doesn't have a whole lot of UTHE names on it, but I found sort of a neat RootsWeb-like site in Germany at:

http://www.genealogienetz.de/

You can opt for the English version if your German is as rusty as mine.

What does have a lot of Illinois UTHE-related info on it is a database I stumbled onto at Ancestry.com for those who subscribe there. Scroll through their listings menuing to the:

Prairie Farmer's Reliable Directory: Will and Southern Cook County, Illinois, 1918

As the title imples, it's sort of an early telephone book. The twist is that *ALL* the occupants of a home are listed as well as the maiden name of the wife! I was able to fill in a bunch of blanks. It fills a gap for the early 20th century where the online Illinois Marriage Index leaves off. ( http://www.sos.state.il.us/cgi-bin/archives/marriage.s )
