Berger Family Genealogy
Berger
   The Berger surname was first found in the northern provinces which would later form Prussia, where the name came from humble beginnings—but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society.
   It's a topographic name for someone who lived in the mountains or hills. It is found as a surname throughout central and eastern Europe, either as a surname of German origin or as a German translation of a topographic name with similar meaning, for example the Slovenian Gricar, Hribar, Gorjan or Gorjanc.
