You can learn a lot from an obituary, as I was reminded in reading the NY Times feature called
tributes to famous women of the past whose deaths hadn't been noted in its pages in the past.
What struck me were the details that marked the eras they lived in: having 10 or 11 siblings; being the daughter of a slave; losing multiple family members to illness and early death.
I hear people say their life hasn't been that interesting or that their families already know everything, so it's pointless to take the time to talk about or capture any of it.
How untrue that is! What is ordinary in one generation often seems extraordinary to the next.
