Translation of 20-page German document

leave a comment »

I have a 20-page document in German needing translating to English regarding the circumstances surrounding Alfred Krupp’s illegitimate son, Wilhelm Lobbert, who reportedly by Burkhart Beyer, settled in the United States. Seeking 4-5 volunteers who are motivated and capable research partners to analyze, interpret and compile finding into a professionally-written journal. Seeking to identify surviving descendants of Wilhelm Lobbert for the purposes of learning new details of his connection to Alfred Krupp, from Germany’s Krupp steel dynasty and to obtain and compare DNA samples to confirm Engelbertha Krupp Stroebele’s banishment from the Krupp family. If you are willing to help by translating this 20-page document, you will be doing so as a member of my research team. All appropriate credit will be given for all work you do.

Please respond to

Historians and genealogists to search for illegitimate Krupp dynasty son descendants

leave a comment »

Seeking a volunteer research partnership with historians and genealogists in locating surviving descendants of Wilhelm Alfried Lobbert in the US- the illegitimate son of  Alfred Krupp, from Germany’s Krupp steel dynasty. Findings will be shared between researchers and made available through scholarly publications.

Krupp Foundation historian, Prof. Burkhard Beyer, disclosed Lobbert’s existence for the first time in 2003 after it remained unrecorded for 174 years. He is unwilling to cooperate or discuss Wilhelm Lobbert or the banishment of my great-grandmother, Engelbertha Krupp Stroebele.
