I have the origination (AHLERS) as being from Germany in the mid 1500's, migrated to Spain intermarried and moved to the Carib Island of Haiti in the 1600's (name changed to ALLERS). We were a mixture of White European and Black Haitians. The black ALLERS were getting traded as slaves and we moved on out to the Dominican Republic in the 1700's. We finally settled in ANASCO, PR in the very early 1800's and Finally changed the name to ALERS. I have tons of stories, pictures, dates and would love to share and get additional info from ANYONE.
