My grandfather Albert Hackert, was born 1886 in Eickfier I know he had a sister called Helene and a father named John. He was in the German army around 1906 and worked on a German Merchant ship, He had family that migrated to America not sure of the date but I know he helped clean up after the earth quake in San Francisco in 1906. His ship called into a port in Australia where he jumped ship and illegally migrated to Australia but I'm not sure of the date this happened as I dont know anything more about him because he died before I was born. Any information about my Grandfather would be appreciated.
Thanks Gaynor Hackert
