(Source of Information: “Christoph Alt of Yass” by Ronald H. Alt, Printed in 1989. Most of the information in the book relates to the family’s life in Australia. Ron Alt is now deceased and so where he obtained the information on the family in Germany, apart from Surviving Military Service Records of Christoph Alt, (born 1828), are not stated and so cannot be verified).
