Kramer - Berks Co. PA, from 1700's

I have a hand written geneology of the Kramer family. Written by Geoge W. Kramer in 1927, he begins: "The earliest definit record of ancestry of this family is an old record found at Binogles Church, Lebanon Co. Penn, formally called Bethel Township - Berks Co. Penn. The birth records are of the 2 sons of Jacob and Catharine Kramer - John, born March 2, 1785 and Peter born June 18, 1790."
The writer goes on to make an earlier connection to this family, from the first immigrant, being: "George Kramer, immigrated from Switzerland to America about 1720; resided in Bethel Twp, Berks Co.; his son was Ferdinand Kramer, who had a son John Jacob, b. Apr. 26, 1757 (known as Jacob, above).
Is anyone interested in this Kramer family history, 1700's through early 1900's? I am not a Kramer, however, my son is and this is his family history, which he would be happy to copy for any Kramer researcher. It is not easy to read but is readable. I know that some of this family currently lives in Fla. Betty
