Unclaimed funds for certain Bergers

The State of Florida is holding unclaimed
funds for Matthew and Esther Berger, Herbert
Berger, David Berger, and others of the
Berger name. Since Matt and Esther were my
grandparents' names and Herb was the name of
a great uncle I sent for the claim forms,
but I think now these funds must have been
left by people more recently alive and who
spent more time in Florida than my relatives
are likely to have done. Grandpa Matt and
Uncle Herb died in the 1940s and Grandma
Esther passed away in 1973. They all lived in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but had some Florida
connections--Grandpa had a band "Matt Berger
and the Tampa Bay Orchestra" from the 1920s
to the early 1940s, though I do not know why
he chose that name. If you have these persons'
names (or others) among your Bergers alive in
the last few decades with a FLA connection,
check it out. I wish there was a bundle for
me, but it appears not, so good luck to you
in claiming what rightfully belongs to these
folks for them or their heirs, which may be
you. Seach on Internet for unclaimed funds
and go to Florida--you can e-mail to have
the forms sent, which tell a little more
about what the unclaimed money is from. They
don't give dates, tho, which would be
helpful. You will need SSNs or other proof
that matches what they have on file in order
to collect. Best wishes, and if anyone
finds references to Matt's orchestra or
recalls hearing them or knows of a recording
(there may be none), I'd love to hear
about it! ---Pam Berger, Milwaukee, WI
