I am trying to trace my ancestry back to the
first immigrant to the U.S...
Apparantely our descendants came from Berne,
Switzerland in the 17th century..I believe
Nicholas was the first to arrive (don't quote
me) but I am not sure of the date. I also believe
that our name Beery (currently U.S.) was de-
rived from either Beer or Bier (not sure).I do
know that Bieri was definately the surname prio
to Beery...
Is there anyone who can help me with some info
such as dates, actual migration site (Ohio, I
think)? Thanks alot...

in short this is what i know about my branch.
BIERI ==> BIERIE (french) + BIERE (german)
family name considered a place name (family was named for the area or region they came from) in this case an area that was disputed over and occupied by both the french and german countries. Supposedly there is a "famous" Prussian general in the family as well as a "moderately successful" composer.
there exists a coat of arms in both the french and german name variants (german one seeming to be of older origin) the family was enobled in the 1500's and confirmed in their nobility in the 1700's (most likely the coat of arms and crest was granted for service to whomever was King or some such.)
family motto (french) is reported to have been "COURAGE SANS FEUR" (COURAGE WITHOUT FEAR).physical trait associated with the family is the "crown" pattern baldness passed down through the men (an unusual trait im told supposedly to do with the weight of authority ,or crown, causing the loss of hair through the middle of the head)
could be true or not...but the coat of arms is on file with the scottish heraldric institute or some such.....
pass on any info you would be appreciated

I am looking for any information on Bernhard Bieri who was married to Margaret Amacher. They lived in Brienz Switzerland and had a son named Peter Bieri. Peter was born in Switzerland and later moved to Minnesota. I would like to find parents for both Bernhard and Margaret and Birth and death dates for both. Any info would be helpful.
