I would like to visit with anyone interested in this BURG Family. I have many photos to share to those that are interested. You can reach me at PO Box 140460, Edgewater, Colorado, or e-mail me direct firstname.lastname@example.org I'd love to know about the BURG family that came from Germany, if anyone knows of this history. I have some maps that shows several towns called "Burg, Germany" and wonder if this BURG family came from one of them towns-?Warmest Regards, James Erwin Kunkle, son of Edna Frances Burg (1913-1989)
