I am really confused by all the info i got off of the site provided by latter-day saints out of Utah. the site is www.familysearch.org . this site is loaded with info pertaining to all kinds of records from churches and other archives. it also shows family trees, spouses, marriages etc.
my original ancester came over from hanover preussen germany around 1800 and his name is john bernard albers and the wife was catherine adelheid koetman.
we might still have something in common---i have to sort all the paperwork and then i will let you know.
