I too am trying to piece together the background of Charles Ludwig von Berg. I am able to trace my family accurately to 1400 but having some difficulty in positioning Charles within our family based on date of birth, place of birth and domicile, parents background as related in the book "Indian Scout Western Painter" by Paul Heerwagen in 1969. The family crest is the same as ours, his father and grandfather being forest masters fits, the region of Baden etc but nowhere does a Carl appear born on the 18th Oct 1854. The family is a hereditary baronetcy (Freiherr)and the genealogy officially is very accurate based on Government documents and I am very keen to identify the veracity of the claimed hereditary background for no other reason than its a mystery I am keen to solve. Not taking anything away from what was by all written and anecdotal reports a remarkable man,I am keen to identify where he fits into our family mix which has a global footprint.
