In the 1911 census of Canada--Sashatchewan
Albert Dallman, age 48, b. April 1863 in Germany, emigrated 1888, stone
mason, naturalized 1892
Amanda (wife) age 48, born Feb.1863, USA, emigrated 1888
Edward E. age 18, born Nov. 1892, USA
William, age 10, born Aug. 1900 born in Man(Manitoba?)
August , father, age 78, born Jan, 1833 in Germany, emigrated in 1888
Albertina, mother, age 73, born Feb. 1838 in Germany, emigrated in 1888
It gives their religion as Methodist, except for Albertina and it looks
like Ger. Lutheran but I could be wrong.

>> I gave a brief intro quite awhile ago. I am still rarely able to do genealogy but when I do, I am at that proverbial "brick wall". I have all the censuses from back almost when they began, to when my ancestors died. My problem is everyone came over during the era when the records were destroyed, married over here (at least the 2nd marriages) before this country or my state of MI began keeping records. So I am really at a loss. I have yet to be able to track even a naturalization paper of any order. The towns I've been to say they don't have the naturalization records at all though I am not convinced this is accurate. Most hindering is the fact that none of these people seem to have any idea who bore them. Even Bertha, who's mother Albertina came here, did not have her mother's info correct on her marriage certificate. She shows up as Teann Albert. A good transpostion of Albertina.
>> Here's what I've found in records in towns, on line, and by finding their gravesite in Boyne City, MI. My maternal Ggrandfather came from Canada (can't track him either) and married (2nd marriage for him) a Prussian woman Bertha Dallman in 1888 in Ludington, MI. Bertha Bishop and her husband Joseph Bishop bought and sold much property all over the northern and middle part of lower MI as he worked the lumber and woodworking areas. Some of it, I found in records, was sold back to an August Dallman. I believe Bertha came over as an Albrecht and our family has her mother as Albertina Albrecht. Albertina was the wife of August Dallman on the property records found in Ludington, MI, in the late 1800's so I suspect her husband either died in Prussia or on the journey here. We have no info on this marriage. On exactly one census I have found that Bertha listed her immigration date as 1884 from Prussia. Our family info has her from Berlin, which I can't confirm even looking at the
>> erman records I can access. I have never found her on a ship manifest with her mother Albertina, so I assume they must have come over individually. Have never found an immigration date for Albertina, though every census and Bertha's marriage records show her from Prussia also. Nor have I been able to find any further history on Albertina Albrecht's marriage to August Dallman, or any information at all on him as there are many August Dallman's. I haven't figured out a way to reduce that yet. The only info on him was from the property deeds.
