Has anyone here ever heard or know anything about the Albert family of violin makers who lived/worked out of Philadelphia from around 1850-1915? I've heard they were a very renowned firm, I know the father was John Albert, and the two sons were Charles F. Albert and Eugene J. Albert. I've had 2 or 3 encounters with violins made by this family, and I currently play on one with a lable from EJ ALberts, marked "Graduated and Improved by EJ Albert, 1918". I am very curious to find out more about the history or story of this family, but can't find any information on the web or otherwise. Thanks.
