I have found no clear link between any descendants of Bertha (what few I have seen) and of Otgiva. There is evidently no evidence that Bertha's husband was Aymard of Geneva, and the current consensus seems to be that Bertha was married to Gerhard, brother of Pope Leo IX (which would at least give her Lotharingian connections). The main basis for this is Wibert's life of Leo IX, which states that Gerhard married a "neptis" of king Rudolf III. [See, e.g., René Poupardin, "Le royaume de Bourgogne (888-1038) - Étude sur les origines du royaume d'Arles" (Paris, 1907), 390; Eduard Hlawitschka, Die Anfang des Hauses Habsburg-Lothringen (Saarbrücken, 1969), 107]. Eduard Hlawitschka, "Zur Herkunft und zu den Seitenverwandten des Gegen königs Rudolf von Rheinfelden" [in Weinfurter & Kluger, eds., Die Salier und das Reich (Band 1: Salier, Adel und Reichsverfassung, 1991), 175-220] has an attempt (pp. 210-5) to reconstruct the family of Bertha's son Gerold of Geneva, but I see nothing there that could be used to support a connection to Otgiva.
