I have recently created a Bax family page on facebook (because I feel like I'm related to all of Missouri at this point). If you'd be interested in joining let me know. I've been trying to trace families down from my immigrant ancestor Joseph Bax (along with his siblings) who was born 11/26/1837 in Ostenland, Germany (christined in Delbrueck) He died 10/6/1884 St. Elizabeth, Miller, Missouri.
It is extremely slow going because there are so many and they keep intermarrying into my other lines.
Anyway, his parents were Johann Heinrich Bax and Anna Maria Theresia Knaup.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone!
