? asked in Arts & HumanitiesGenealogy · 7 years ago

This is an addition to my last question.?

I have all the lineage info for my fathers maternal side of the family. Its the paternal side. I know his name that's it. My father passed away in 87 so I can't ask. I know my grandfather would have been much older than my grandmother. I think he was her 3rd husband. Atleast 20 yrs. I know his name is Lawrence D. Baumgart. Don't know if he had other children. My father was born in 43 the only child ( im the end of the Baumgarts??) so my grandfather had to have died in 46. I know they resided in Oxford, and Omaha Nebraska.

    we can start with the 1940 census...you can get the summary and view the original image. There are 2 sons living with him at the time.

    1930,with same 2 kids..and wife at the time...notice, his parents are listed as born in Germany but he shows Missouri. That could be an error.

    am assuming that Larry is your dad...so I picked up a list of all Baumgarts in the same cemetery...




    go figure...in 1900, the family lived in Arkansas (you can pull the original page of the 1900 census from this link).

    1900 is good since it gives month and year of birth, est year of marriage, and year of immigration


    and I love me a good marriage record which has both parents of the groom and bride...

    Felix had several sons..so I doubt that you are the last of the name.
