A few bits more that I failed to have in the prior msg. with the p.7yr 8 stufffrom Der Berg, is that the Heinrich that moved to Tiegenhagen between 1776-80 is listed as aschneider. The notes on thew 1777 born Heinrich, gma #43822 or is it 43827 ( the one thats thew son of the other),says he was in Tiegenhagen for a while. I have now seen other records that said he was married in Tiegenhagen.
Thenon p. 168 of stumpp, where the 3 Heinrich Bargens are listed, the 2nd one, the one born in 1777, isalso vcalled a schneider.
I am believing that the generations will backtrack thru a Martin vanBergen ,who led 35,000 Mennonites out of Antwerp in 1585 to Prussia, per the Horst Penner book. A Der Berg page has a Mertenvan Bergen getting married in Tiegenhagen in 1640, and the Catholic church record on him in Derberguses words that say he was the youngest f afamous father,and in very exalted words describes this Merten and his wife. These words are veryun-typical of a Cathollic church mariage record of the day. In my opinion,Merten is the son of Martin.
Der Berg, writtwen between 1934-41, asa bergen family paper, also says that there were 5 family lines of Bergens - 2 German, 2 Dutch, and 1 Swedish. The ventriloquist Edgar Bergen,and his daughter the actress Candace Bergen, areof the swedish line. The author , Fritz van Bergen, also says that his line comes out of Bergen-op-Zoom Holland, about 60 miles or so west NW of Antwerp Belgium , from where Martinled the 35,000 mennonitesto Prussia in 1585.
