View Full Version : Looking for Peter Burger - possibly Switzerland

30-09-2008, 7:29 AM
I am trying to locate information including birth details on Peter Burger born 1854 possibly in Switzerland and his parents were Mary/Maria/Marieanne maiden name unknown and Silvester Burger. Silvester Burger was a dairy farmer. According to Peter's marriage certificate he came from La Stoutz in the community of La Roche in the canton of Fribourg. It is possible the family moved to Switzerland from one of the surrounding countries. I am aware that he came to Australia in June 1878 on a ship called "Cuzco" at the age of 24 years.Can you suggest places to look or contact for information and further research.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
