hey this is my family tree also. I live in louisville for now and I have cousins here also. My sister Teresa did a family tree some years ago and her e-mail address is TRAlbers@aol.com in case you would like to contact her. My e-mail address is email@example.com and I have saved a description of what the ALBERS name means and how it came to be this. I saved it from a posting here by a guy named Bernard Albers under a post heading of I HAVE THE ALBERS NAME HISTORY he bought this from someone who was selling family name histories but he did not purchase the coat of arms and I am curious about that ! It seems that farmers, doctors, lawyers, firemen , and basically any smart and honest people run in this lineage.
I asked my dad John Albers about the family and he told me that Joseph and Harry were Step brothers while Irvine and clarence were 1/2 brothers.
FYI-I did a name search on google for the name John Albers and it came back with 1,290,000 results. ---WOW--- I would have never guessed that!
