OK, Larry, so here's what to do now if you really are keen! His family record might be at the civil registry. All except Aeschlen & Gampelen come under the Thun Zivilstandsamt (civil registry), so odds are in favour of his record being there.
Here's the challenge - you could try e-mailing them (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating his full name & dob, and that you don't know his gemeinde, but as most Gyger's are from (and quote the list in my last post, ex the 2 noted earlier), can they see if they have his records?
You can write in English, starting with a courteous apology for not having any German. Most likely they will reply in english. DO NOT use Google translate for your e-mail to them!
At worse thay may decline without you paying a search fee (which they should quote). At best they will come up with a result!
Let me know how you get on.
