Re: PETER BALMER
I just checked this forum today after not looking for it for a while and found your posting.My father was a Balmer from Wilderswil and I have been researching his family for several years now.I intially began looking at the Billiter Notes on the Balmer family and then verified the Billeter information in the parish records for that area.The parish that served the Interlaken area was the Gsteig Parish.Those records are on microfilm and can be ordered to be read at any local LDS Family History Center.Unfortunately, they only go up to 1875 so anything after that is not available on microfilm.
I don't have your gg grandfather Peter in my database, but I do have his parents and back from them.Peter Balmer born in July 1939 and married to Anna Glaus in April of 1861 was the son of Johannes Balmer and Anna Pauli.Johannes was bornin Jun of 1805 and he is the son of Peter Balmer and Elisabeth Boss.I have uploaded my database to WorldConnect.If you go tohttp://worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=sonjarhttp://worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=sonjarand look for a Johannes Balmer born in Jun of 1805, married in November of 1831to Anna Pauli you can look at a Pedigree Chart for Johannes and see what is there.
I have the microfilms on indefinite loan at my local Family History Center and would be more than happy to check on information in them for you.
