Yes, your grandfather was part of a family of 8 or 9 brothers and sisters. Your dad could tell you a lot about the family.You need to go into the genealogy link you gave me and clear up some 'facts'.Your grandfather came here in the 1920's probably (his name was Herman Robert Wyssbrod) and settled in Louisville and opened a cheese shop with his brother Emil.They ran the shop together and your grandfather did the sales and delivery of the cheese.Apparently, he was very personable and friendly.He married your grandmother, Anna Marie Hoerni, in 1939, and they moved into the house you remember on Larchmont Street.He died on a trip back to Switzerland when your dad was 6 1/2 years old.They had taken a day trip on the train and were somewhere around Rheinfalls when he had an attack and died.
Other relatives in Bern are Jean Wyssbrod and his wife, Verena.I have the address somewhere at home; they visited us in NY when you were small. A sister of your grandfather lived in Biel when we visited there in 1966. I am not sure if she is still alive, and am not sure of her name.And she had a son, Bruno, who is your father's cousin.He and his wife also live in Biel. Jim Peterson, who is leaving messages on the website, is also a cousin of your father.He is related through his father who is an uncle (brother of your grandfather) who had Jim as a child by a first marriage, and then left that family (or died).Jim and your dad have corresponded over the years.In fact, he visited us in NY too.I do have his phone number at home.He called and was trying to reach your dad recently.Do you want Jim's phone number?
The family's name was never spelled Weisbrot, that's German.Wyssbrod is a Swiss spelling.
