In Reply to: Bergers of Switzerland by Lorraine Kapphahn of 1094

Pardon the output from genealogy program, but here is some info I have on MY Peter Berger from Switzerland. One Peter Berger, Jr emmigrated to Ohio in 1852. I understand it's a long shot given how common the name is, but if anyone has any connection with my line please contact me.
