Mark Alberstein According to Dr. Beider's "Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire", The name Alberstein originates from the city of Halberstadt, Germany. When European Jews were first taking on surnames, some chose the name of the city in which they lived. Some of those who took the name Halberstadt and then subsequently migrated to the Russian empire changed the name to any of serveral alternatives. Because the Russian alphabet has no letter H, some elected to take the preceding consonant G, and the name became Galberstadt. Others just dropped the H and the name became Alberstadt. Still others elected to change the Germanic "stadt" to the Yiddish "stein". Today we find Halberstadt, Halberstein, Galberstadt, Galberstein, Alberstadt, and Alberstein, all derived from the same source.
