You stated that it is believed by some that the name Alberro comes from Arberro
however, I wish to contradict and say no, it comes from Etche Alberrio- meaning
"the house -of the neighboring village/countryside the " Alber Herrio, or just
the neighbors' house/land, at least thats the translation of my Great-grand
father whose name was Don Eusebio D'ETCHEALBERRIO, some of my cousins are today
the Alberro family in the U.S., some the famille Alberry in Quebec, and yet
others the familia Alverro in Argentina!
