I am looking to connect with relatives of this ggrandfather of mine. He was born in Uffholtz Haut=Rhin Alsace in 1825. His father was Theobaut Perring but Theobald seemed to prefer Berring. I am collecting a fair amount of info on this line, much of it from Bob Behra. You can look at his data on Rootsweb. Just call up Berring surname. I hope someone out there connects.
