Where are my photos and albums?
I have an older Version of Photoshop Elements 9 with 6.000 photos, organized in 55 albums konvertiert by installation of Elements 13. After this installation only 1 album with 112 photos posted in organizer. Now, where I can find the other photos and albums in Elements 13?

Could you try a new catalog conversion from the Catalog Manager in the Elements 13 organizer menu? (Menu File/Manage catalog).
I understand you have installed PSE13 on the same computer with PSE9 and your photo library.
When you press the 'convert' button, be sure to tick the checkbox to show already converted catalogs and browse manually to the folder containing your PSE9 catalog.
You find the location of the old catalog in PSE9 by using the menu Help/System Info. Just to check, there should be a 'catalog.pse9db' file in this folder. I suppose you have cleaned your pse9 catalog first, reconnect missing files, repair and optimized before attempting the conversion.
Be patient, you may need a few seconds before the catalog folder is recognized in the process.
