I have a Herman Berger in my family tree.His approximate birth 1853 and found him in a New York census 1870.His brother Louis Berger moved to San Francisco where he married Lettie Noakes. Louis was my gr-gr-grandfather. The mother that was listed in the 1870 census was Wilhelmina.She was listed as being of Prussian origin. Nothing more other than the info from this census.
Do you have any info on Herman's origin or when he was born?
