<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Albers. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.

So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a village (such as Albers). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Albers or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
