HI! MY NAME IS JOHN ALBERS AND I LIVE IN LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY . I HAVE MANY RELATIVES FROM THE CINCY AREA AND HERE IS WHAT I HAVE SO FAR FROM MY DAD
MY FAMILY IS ORIGINALLY FROM VIENNA AUSTRIA AND THERE WERE THREE BROTHERS WHO CAME TO AMERICA IN THE 1800'S (SO WE BELIEVE) THE STORY IS THAT THEIR NAME WAS ALBER BUT THEY CHANGED IT TO ALBERS BECAUSE EVERYONE KEPT REFERRING TO THEM AS THE ALBER'S BOYS
IN THE LATE 1800'S THERE WAS A MAN NAMED BERNARD ALBERS (MAYBE SPELLED BERNHARDT?) THIS MAN WAS MY GREAT GRANDFATHER.
BERNARD HAD TWO BROTHERS NAMED JOSEPH AND PETE. PETE WAS BLIND AND ALL THREE OF THESE MEN SPOKE FLUENT GERMAN AS WELL AS ENGLISH
MY GRANDFATHER JOHN PETER ALBERS WAS ABOUT TEN WHEN BERNARD ALBERS DIED. UPON HIS DEATH HIS BROTHER JOSEPH MARRIED ROSA (THE WIDOW OF BERNARD).
BERNARD AND ROSA HAD SONS NAMED: FRANK, JOSEPH ,EDDIE , AND JOHN (MY GRANDFATHER)
BERNARD AND ROSA HAD TWO CHILDREN NAMED IRVINE AND CLARENCE THESE WERE 1/2 BROTHERS TO FRANK,JOSEPH,EDDIE,AND JOHN
FRANK ,JOSEPH,EDDIE AND JOHN ALSO HAD FOUR STEP BROTHERS AND SISTERS(MAYBE MORE?) ; TWO OF WHICH WERE NAMED JOSEPH AND HARRY.
SO NOW WE HAVE JOSEPH AND ROSA LIVING WITH 10 CHILDREN.
MY GRANFATHER JOHN PETER ALBERS MARRIED A WOMAN NAMED MARY LORRETTA REEVES
AND THEY HAD OFFSPRING NAMED JOHN ,KENNY, RICHARD AND PATRICIA.
RICHARD AND KENNY HAVE DIED BUT MY DAD JOHN ALBERS AND HIS SISTER PAT (WHO LIVES IN VIRGINIA) ARE STILL ALIVE TODAY.
I WILL WORK ON SKETCHING AND SCANNING A FAMILY TREE FROM WHAT I HAVE SO FAR AND ANYONE INTERESTED IN THIS CAN E-MAIL ME AT firstname.lastname@example.org
I would also appreciate any further info on this subject from anyone interested in providing some. please sketch out your tree as you know it and send it to me at my gmail address so i can compile a complete file for this family tree. also I have left a note on the austria geneoligy site for anyone named albers or alber to contact me.
