If your parents were cousins, try and find out more on your Mum's side, and that may give you clues to your father's ALBRECHT side.

Ask your relatives, especially the older ones if they are forthcoming any information on your family tree/genealogy.

There are 63 records for ALBRECHT at

Maybe have a read of links here

That's really all I can think of at present.

Dear Amanda, Hi there. You're welcome. You may or may not be related to the 63 people listed in ancestral file records at familysearch.org.

It is all to easy to go off on a wild goose chase and research other people's trees instead of your own. Remember, with genealogy we start with ourselves and work backwards. The way I did it was to purchase Death Certificates of my Grandparents, and in Australia they mostly have the names of their parents on them. Then I purchased my Great Grandparents Birth and/or Death Certificates and kept going until I reached the point of the first ancestor that emigrated to Australia (unless one has Aboriginal ancestry). Then once I found a common ancestor that lived in England, I went through the Census years 1901 back every 10yrs until 1841 via the rootschat.com website asking kind people to do lookups for me.
