Bakonyoszlop, Veszprem, Hungary - Village of my Ancestors

Bakonyoszlop is a small village located in the Bakony Mountains of Veszprém county, Hungary.
This is the birthplace of Andrew Bauman, b.29 Jan 1901, son of Ferenc Bauman & Zsuzsanna Grosz.


The town's Roman Catholic Church was built between 1726 and 1746 by Ferenc Eszterhazy.

Using the Family History Library > Place Search  I located 4 microfilms available for this church covering events from 1726 to 1895, which I used extensively to trace our Bauman family history.

My Grandfather was Joseph Bauman born 18 Apr 1883 in Oszlop, Veszprem, Hungary. His parents were Joseph P Bauman b.1850 and Barbara Breier. Could we be related? My Grandfather came to Camden,NJ Sep 1902 and married Theresia Franz b. 15 Sep 1890 in Vienna, Austria. They were married in Camden in 1909.
You have a great web site! My grandfather was baptized in the same church you have pictured. Let me know what you think.
