The principal goals of the project are:
1 to identify the main genetic lines of the Baumgartners and their name variants
2 to identify the geographic homeland of each line
3 to assist members to identify their line and fill in their family tree or genealogy.
The Baumgartner DNA Project is open to all who are interested in working together to find their common heritage through sharing of information and Y-DNA testing. All variant spellings are welcome. If your Surname is missing, we'll be glad to add it.
