                              1897 Racine City Directory; PARTIAL; ABER to AUGUSTINE


      In my attempt to gather as much information on the city directories for

Racine county while in Racine, I was only able to get a very little

portion of the city directory for 1897.  If someone wishes to add to it,

or xerox it and snail-mail to me as a joint effort, I'll be more than

glad to type it up and upload it for the benefit of all.  You would naturally

get full credit with name posted as submitter.  Please check

with me first, however, as I still have directories in my possession to

transcribe, including other parts of the 1897 directory. Thank you.
