Hello Kelly,

Below are some directory entries on some of the surnames you are
interested in.

Unless there is something specific you are looking for at the
library, I wouldn't spend your only day in the library,
but I'll be interested to hear what others on the list suggest.

LIsters--what do you think Kelly could accomplish at Chicago Historical?

You might try to map (and translate**) these addreses before you come
and maybe visit some of them while you are here.
Not all will be neighborhoods you would be safe in, but some would be.
** Street names and numbers changed for some in 1905.

Hope this helps.
