I am adding my husband's family and planning to surprise him with it for Christmas. His father's side came from Ireland and his mother's side came from Hungary/Austria/Romania/who-knows-where!. That's where I'm trying to start because I can find absolutely nothing about the Irish side. They are Bachmann-116 and Eichert-13
I found the names of towns where his grandparents came from (document is stuck in grandmother's profile just as my notes - I haven't started to write it yet).and got a map from google. It turns out one is in Serbia and one is in Romania. I believe (but not certain) that they were married before they came to US, I found 1940 and 1930 census records for the family. They had a lot of children - one, named Richard, appears in 1930 census, but is missing in 1940. Their children were all born in NJ, US, starting in 1908. I would expect to see 1910 and 1920 census records, but can't find them. I also can't find any immigration records, birth records, or marriage records for them or their children. I know the children all stayed in NJ except 1 that lived in MA as an adult. I know many of the children's spouses and their children's names, but can't find any documents for any of them - and this is all US!
Profile linked below is of my husband - I'm starting to write that one, but haven't gotten too far. Although I need to do this, I somehow don't feel like I'm up to the level needed to do it. All help will be greatly appreciated.
