Hi Lloyd,

Thanks for the tip; I had actually already contacted the Waukegan Historical Society and recently received a nice package from them including pages from the past 140 years of City Directories containing Herbergers who are quite possibly descendants of my early Herbergers. Interestingly enough, some of the earlier city directories alluded to a tannery located on Water Street which was owned & run by my GGGgrandfather, Theobald Herberger, that the Historical Society says they never even knew existed until seeing it on that city directory page, so it was new information for all of us!

I appreciate your help; thanks and good luck in your own research.
