About Alsace. We have good "censuses" of Alsace in 1808 and 1851. You can
find the indexes of these censuses on our Website , in
the section "Other Researches". I have found there no mention of PLATTEIS
/ PLATTUS. Nevertheless, one can find the name BLATT in Cernay(Haut-Rhin)
in 1808 and 1851, and in Thann (Haut-Rhin) in 1851 and the name PLATTE in
1808 at Besançon (in the file Haut-Rhin).

May I also suggest that you ask a question on the same site in the Section

Good luck
