The Kehres family in Alsace

by Marc Caris
(Atlanta, GA)

I am trying to find information on the Caris/ Kehres (Kahres?)family in Alsace. The name was originally spelled Kehres. It was somehow changed upon arrival in the states. The most concrete info I have is for Pierre Kehres. He was born in Rountzenheim in 1791. His father's name was George. Pierre, and family, arrived in the US in 1843. How/where can I find info on George and his family?

I can't say that I have heard of this family name. But as you have a birthplace, there's no reason that you shouldn't be able to find some records unless they are missing.

Of course the records will be a bit odd because they are from the Revolutionary period.

But they will be in badly handwritten French : )

Good luck!

The name of Pierre's father was not George, it was Joseph
