I’m looking for living family members that are still living in Switzerland. Back in 1982 a family member came to the United State’s and brought over a family tree. I would love to connect with living family members to add to our tree.
My 4th great-grandfather Samuel Baumgartner, Birth 22 November 1807 in Rapperswil, Bern, Switzerland Death 07-April 1892 Waukesha Wisconsin USA. He married Magdalena Schori Birth 2 November 1812 Death 1894. She was also from Rapperswil, Bern, Switzerland.
From stories I remember Samuel came to the USA with a couple of his children and left Magdalena in Switzerland with a couple of children. I believe some of the children were.
- Magdalena born 1835
- Nicklaus born 1841
- John born 1843
- Jacob born 1845
- Bendicht born 1848
- Friedrich born 1851
They were all born in Rapperswil, Bern, Switzerland. I don’t know what children stayed in Switzerland and what one came to the USA
This is my grandma’s side of the family
