I agree. Records show abundantly that Swedish or German Bergman(n)s were at the mercy of whoever was recording names. In one instance, I know a Bergmann was listed by a census taker as Burgermon. My brother insists his name is spelled with two "n"s because that's what the birth certificate said. A cousin insisted he was not related to me since his name had two "n"'s. Please use name groups and not split up Genforum and other surname indexes even more.
