Re: Searching for my Swiss Baumann ancestors

Hmmmmm. Call me an overly suspicious old git but am I the only one to think that the OP's English sounds very much like a Nigerian 419 scammer fishing for contacts?

Welcome to the forum Mel
If I were trying a scam I think I would cast my net wider than people named Baumann / Bowmann trying to trace their ancestry on an English Forum...

Otherwise it would be a Fail of the Day, oder?

True, but I have many examples of budding 419ers who could qualify for fail of the century. The best one though are getting quite imaginative.
