Re: Any Hartlebens Out There?
Where was your father born? There are basically four different areas where it appears that Hartlebens "come from" after moving over from Germany. The largest it seems is the Hartleben clan from West Virginia. My family comes from New York. There are only a few Hartleben families in NY, and most appear to be related. There is a group of Hartlebens from Guatemala/Mexico and California who all seem to be related (although one California family is related to me). Have you been researching your family tree for long? I have for around five years or so now. I go in spurts usually triggered by someone like you renewing my interest. I hope to hear back from you soon :).
