I recently found that my family name was Lebeau, and that the earliest ancestor I could find via Internet records was my grgrgrgrgrgrgrgrandfather, Abraham Lebeau, who died prior to 1708 in the Alsace region. Doing some rough estimates as to his age based on the birth year of his son, John Lebeau b. 1683, I figure he was probably born about 1663 or earlier. Does anyone have experience with tracing records earlier than this? Or does anyone have any information about Abraham Lebeau or his ancestors? His son was probably born around Aisne. Our branch settled in Pennsylvania between 1710 and 1734, and the spelling changed to Lebo and eventually Leppo. Thanks very much!
