The Military Record (Kriegstammrolle: personnel record books of Bavarian Military rosters) for Josef Berg (b. 07 Mar 1863 • Karlsruhe, Baden, d. 01 Jan 1915 • Karlsruhe, Germany) shows he died a few days before Jan. 1. from a wound.
His existence is verified in a transcript as being in my family line as:
". . . [in] a second note underneath that first; dated on 1898, October 19th: Josef Berg, evangelical, by profession carpenter, married with Friederike (called “Frieda” Bär) since the 10th of October in 1891, declared, that he was the biological father of Anna. [He was] the son of the unmarried woman Christina Berg living at Karlsruhe and coming from the village Hüffenhardt, belonging to the administration district of the town Neckar-bischofsheim. DOB 7 Mar 1863 Birthplace Karlsruhe Religion Evangelical - Lutheran DOD 1 Jan 1915 in Karlsruhe; marriage 10 Oct 1891." (And he lived around the corner from his mother Christina Berg, who was a von Berg, noted by the archivist below.)

I have located a record (Deutscheverlustlisten) of the death of a Josef Berg In an Infantry Regiment Nr 69; [B]erthes am 27, 12, 14 (27, Dec 1914) Battlion I, Companie 1 (see col 3 of the page) in which noted is Uhrbu(umlaut-u)tte, Schleiden --leicht vervundet,. How would I find his likely place of assumed burial and verify if he is or is not my relative, the Josef. Berg.

EDIT Nov 5, 2016: the death of "a Josef Berg" just above has been shown to me as clearly not my known ggf. Pardon me,please for not knowing enough.]
I STILL do need to find my ggf's death records.
