My name is Leah and I think I have Kerns from Alsac-Lorraine. That is what I was told, but haven't found anything as of yet to prove this.
My ggrandfather was Emil Bruno Kern, b. 14 Feb 1862 in Saxon, Germany (I think). I have no idea if that is even close to Alsac. He married a Nona Marie IMMEN, but that was in the US.
I only know of them living in Sioux City, Woodbury Co., IA.
All children were born in Sioux City also.
Is there a place on the internet where I can look at birth information from Germany to verify that Emil was born there, and possibly find his parents?
Thank you to anyone who may help me with this.
