I have been searching for HILBERT expecially when I am looking at a census record. I have saw William Helbert b1852 with the spelling of HILBERT in one or two census. Also in the 1880 of Tazewell Co. when the census was transcribed he is listed as William Holbert.I know that one of my Helberts went to WV, Brittian Helbert. Though I have not had contact with them. Well it seems to me that unless the person is "into" geneaology ,they will not really talk about the ancesters . I hope to have some form of family tree report printed up and I think it will make my dad more interested in the past and maybe he will help me more. Suchas go to his sister and see if she has old photos. I have heard that she had some. Daddy never had any, though I think he may have had one of William Beverly (Bev) Helbert...but all was lost in a fire about 4 years ago.
