Baum is quite a common name I think. Got a place name (or 2) for her birth? And some indication of a birth date, please?

Borders may have shifted a lot in history, hence the question.
Yes Baum is a common name, and at severel tmes Austria was part of the Germanies we really need to have a timeframe and posible birth places would help.

If you are referring to around the time of the second world war Austria was claimed to be part of Germany by Adolf Hitler, thereby it would make sense to have records of Austrian and German birth, as Hitler decreed that Austria was German. If you are talking outside this period disregard what I have said.
