Billert is an unusual last name. The Billerts I know were all centered around Brooklyn, NY. My grandfather was Theodore and my great-aunt was Minnie. Their parents emigrated from Germany around 1900.
You are my first contact. Is there a connection that you know about?

Well it seems the Billerts got along well with the Irish. My connection is Billert Ryan. i have not traced them beyond St. louis and Warrenton Mo. the Ryans came to St. Louis from Boston/Ireland and met the Billerts in St. louis and went to Truesdale, Mo.

Hallo Herr Billert,

Ihr Familienname ist eventuell nur eine Schreibweise von "Billet". "Billert" soll es auch in Lahr/Baden geben, wo ich selbst auch Vorfahren habe. Bitte um Kontaktaufnahme unter: KlausW.Billet@t-online.de

Gruß Klaus Billet

I have Billert relatives in my family that were born and died in Aschersleben, Saschen, Germany between 1873 and 1946. The dates are probably longer, but we lost contact. Do you live in that area?

I do not know where in Germany my ancestors lived. I do know that my grandfather, Theodore, was born within a year of 1900 and that his mother and father immigrated from Germany either the year before or year after his birth.

James you posted this question eight years ago, but if you're around...here is my theory...only a theory at this time -- I've only been at this for two months -- I'm a newbie. My g-g-grandmother was Marie Elisabeth Billert. Through the LDS I found she was born in 1835 to John Joseph Billert and Barbara Berg in Hoerdt, Bavaria. The only other John found in Hoerdt married an Elizabeth Huber and had Elias, Conrad and (John?)Joseph (maybe more)prior to 1830. I think Elizabeth died, he married Barbara and maybe she also died within a couple of years. I only see the one baby (my g-g) for them. From what I can tell it appears Conrad and Elias definitely settled in St Louis by the early 1840's (Elias stated 1842 on the census) which means they were children/young teens. From what I knew (hardly anything) of my g-g-gram it was thought she was born in Missouri. The LDS proves that wrong. I can't find all four of them together on the census, but I HAVE to believe they were from the same (half-sibs) family -- the coincidence all were in St Louis/Franklin/Jefferson County is too great. Joseph married here in 1846, but then he disappears (so far from my research). Elias who I believe is your link, and brother Conrad both married here. Elias died in Minn and I cannot find a death for Conrad, but his wife K/Catherine died in St Louis. Elisabeth married Franz Naumann in 1853 in Jefferson County, and died in 1868, buried near Maxville. I could be way off base, but I'd be more surprised if they are NOT related. Wish I could find a ship list with all their names! (Dreaming here...) Anyway, hope that helps! - Patti

Patti, have you tried the "Germans to America" volumes that lists a huge number of Germans on various ships to the US. There must be about 25-30 volumes that lists most ships from Germany or close areas around Germany to the US. The ships are by dates, but the index in the back of each volume is alphabetical. You need to know about when you relatives came and them look for them in several volumes around that date. It is helpful if serveral relatives came at the same time. The pasengers lists often give the place of origin, such as, Aschersleben. Give it a try. The main LDS FHC in ST Louis should have the complete set of books.

Thank you for the suggestion Stephen. I hadn't been aware of these volumes, and am very fortunate to have an LDS center so near. Sounds like a plan! Soooo much to learn....
