"Midwestern Methodists" is published! Table of contents attached...

 My second family history book is available now at lulu.com: Midwestern Methodists: Four Thrall Generations from Bone Gap, Illinois, 1809-2018. It follows Worthy Thrall (1809-1851) and his wife Hannah James (1809-1874) and their four children, 16 grandchildren, and 38 great-grandchildren -- the 8th, 9th, and 10th generations from immigrant ancestor William Thrall of Connecticut (and presumably from England, although he has yet to be found there in the late 1500s or early 1600s). Price is $28.99 (430 pages) but lulu.com has 10% off through the 18th of September.

I have not figured out whether there is a way to put the Table of Contents up at lulu, so here it is in this quiet corner of the internet instead!
