All of my Baumgartners emigrated from Switzerland. The name Baumgartner is fairly common in German speaking regions. "Baum" is German for tree. Baumgartner translates roughly as "tree garder" or "tree grower". The person originally given the surname probably had an orchard. The long and short of is is that Baumgartners in the US are not all descended from one immigrant as sometimes is the case with other surnames. Sorry, but we are not related.
