I was wondering if there is anyone out there that would be willing to share information or point me in the right direction. What I am interested in is ancestors of the Vorp[e] family which came over from Bern, Switzerland. I am not sure how common of a name that is in Switzerland, but Ami Ferdinand Vorpe was born in Bern in 1825 and came over with his parents at that time. I've tried to research his parents and their ancestors, but ran into a wall when I reached him. Any suggestions? I really appreciate it. I'll keep watching for postings, or you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
