j am a french man. J was born in algeria in 1947. After the french war of 1870 against france and germany, my family leave Alsace. The reason was to stay french and not german. Germany won this war and take alsace and lorraine originally frenchs countrys. In alscace a village is called Oberdorff, but my family is from alkirsch, an alsacian village too. A lot of Oberdorff people actually in france come from Algeria in 1962 to stay french. My father Maurice married an algerian berberian Woman, my mother, Aida. We suppose that others Oberdorff leave Alsace in 1870 for the United states. The whole family from algerian is catholic, but according the Oberdorff village mayor, the original religion of the family was jewish. Otfen in Europa jewish people had the name of the village or town where they rest.
