As you probably know there are two completely different groups of Aldermans.
The ENGLISH group was here in the US first.
The GERMAN group came later.Jacob Olterman/Oltermann/Alterman was the grand-daddy.He and his brother came over from Germany by ship. Jacob settled in Virginia.
By the time the German Aldermans got settled in Virginia, the English Aldermans were scattered. [Florida, New York, etc.]
This has helped me save a lot of time finding my German ancestors.
