Georg Bernhardt Altstadt was born around 1730 in Michelfeld, Baden, Germany. Most of the Altstadt immigrants to America from the Michelfeld area, along with their Michelfleld Altstadt descendant cousins, who still live in Germany, can trace their ancestry back to Bernhardt.

Bernard's grandson, Johann Heinrich Altstadt, married Katharina Seeburger and they had at least six children. Heinrich was a baker and family tradition states that - "when Heinrich called his apprentices early in the morning the whole village of Michelfeld woke up!"

Johann Georg Altstadt (pictured at left with his wife, Margaret), was a farmer in Michelfeld. His son, Fred Altstadt, immigrated to America, via Castle Garden, New York, in 1873, eventually settling in Nebraska.

Other Altstadt's of this line who immigrated to America were: Johann Michael Altstadt, Jacob Altstadt, Gottfried Altstadt, and William "Bismark" Altstadt, These families settled in either Portland, OR, Ackley, IA and Omaha, NE.
