    Hey there

    I think that your best chance is to contact the Algerian Ambassy to direct you to the proper service(Archives) in Algeria or perhaps to Bordeaux in France where they manage French citizens born overseas, if the French authorities kept Algerian records when they poped up in Algeria in 1832.
    How you trace yourself back to Algeria? - Are you from Louisiana ?

      I am from Minnesota, my dad was born in MN also. As far as the rest of it, I have no idea. Thanks for the lead, it would be kinda neat to find relation in Algeria.

        If your grandfather is born in algeria and he is french, you can ask the born certificate to the following adress :

        Mr le Ministre des affaires etrangeres
        Service central de l etat civil
        11 rue de la maison blanche
        44941 Nantes cedex09

        but it's absolutely neccessary you know his surname, name(s), birth date and birth place (may be with the birth certificat of your brother).

        If your father is born in France, write to the town hall of his birth place.

        In all cases, you can make this request on ligne (internet).

        Check also the web site like or contact the U.S. immigration office.

        Good luck
