Engelbertha Krupp Society seeks researchers fluent in German to assist in locating/disclosing records of Illegitimate Krupp steel dynasty son

leave a comment »

The Engelbertha Krupp Society seeks volunteer historians, genealogists and researchers to assist in locating records of Wilhelm Alfried Lobbert, illegitimate son of Alfred Krupp (1812-1887) from Germany’s Krupp steel and munitions dynasty. Full credit and exposure of work will be given.

In 2003, Prof. Burkhart Beyer, Alfried Krupp Foundation historian, disclosed Lobbert’s existence after it was concealed for nearly 174 years. The subject of Lobbert was again resurrected in 2013 after Germany’s news magazine, der Spiegel, ran a feature story about the disclosure of my great-grandmother’s banishment from the Krupp family in my book titled The Cannon King’s Daughter. Engelbertha Krupp’s banishment was concealed from the public for 134 years.

My intentions are to first locate Lobbert’s birth records, places of residence, marriage record and children through church and civil records. The ultimate goal is to match my DNA to Alfred Krupp’s DNA through one of Lobbert’s surviving descendants via FamilyTreeDNA.

Presently, we are in need of someone who is fluent in German to translate a 20-page investigative journal by German Professor Dr. Burkhard Beyer. This can be done orally via telephone.

Our first model has the search for Lobbert born in Germany c.1829 and living in Denmark, Switzerland or Austria. He may have briefly immigrated to the United States.

The second model has Wilhelm Lobbert born in Germany c.1850 and living in the same countries listed above.

German passport films from the LDS Church would be most helpful in identifying all Wilhelm Lobberts that left Germany after 1829.

Wilhelm Lobbert’s mother was identified by Dr. Burkhard Beyer as being Maria Christina Wickenburg. Place of birth/death unknown.

Interested persons should email info@davidstroebel.com with the subject “Wilhelm Lobbert.”

Thank you all,

David

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 info@davidstroebel.com

Thanks,
David Stroebel

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.
