My father was Ferdinand William Jacober Jr and was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1918. His father was also called Ferdinand Wm Jacober who was married to Grace Amanda Frashier. They had three children- Dorothy, Gordon, Ferdinand Wm (my father), and Calvin. My great grandparents were Frederick H Jacober who married a Schuman. This is all I know.
I was astonished to see all the messages for Jacobers using google and would love to know when my ancestors came to the USA, why, and from where. I have been told that there is a Swiss connection and possibly an Alsace Lorraine connection but noone in the family seems to know and my parents and my aunts and uncles are now dead. It would be wonderful to be able to pass on more to my older children who are dual nationals as I live in England now.
I have not done any searching before so am very green to all this but thought it would be worth a try!
Please contact me if you think there is a connection.
