(geonymum, Berg, Germ. – "mountain", "hill") traditionally settled Roma inhabiting the mountainous Polish-Slovak border. They share a similar dialect with the so-called Slovak/Servika Roma. Many common family names witness earlier family ties. Songs collected by the Polish ethnologist Izydor Kopernický at the beginning of the twentieth century around Zakopane are close variants of songs sung up to the present by Servika Roma. Trad. professions: music and black smith trade.
