Re: Hartleben Family Tree
My father Albert (Alberto Francisco Otto Hartleben) was born in Chicacao, Guatemala on December 21,1902 and died in Guatemala City on November 15, 1981. His father was Fritz (Johannes Friedrich Albert) Hartleben and he was born on February 22, 1869 in Klausthal/Zellerfeld, Harz, Germany and died in Houston, Texas on September 22, 1941. His father was Georg Wilhelm Albert Hartleben who was born on January 13, 1834 in Gemkenthal, Harz, Germany and died on December 16, 1869 in Colmar, Alsace, France. And his father was Johann Heinrich Friedrich Hartleben who was born on July 20, 1797 and died on November 3, 1864; we know that he had seven children but unfortunately I only know of one, the ancestor of my line of the Hartleben clan, which is the one whose members now are in Guatemala and Mexico. We also know that the Hartleben family originated from the Egerland which is part of Bohemia, a region found today between Germany and the Check Republic. After the 30-Year-War in the 16thCentury the family moved to the mining region known today as the Harz mountain south of Hannover in Germany. The Hartleben were originally all miners.
My father Alberto Hartlben (mentioned above) was the one who collected all this information while often travelling to Germany in the 30ties.
