My grandfather said he was born in Baumgarten in 1888.
However, I just found some of his family on the "Hungary Catholic Church Records 1636-1895".
Grandpa was the youngest of 11 children of Antol and Anna Amand Valli.

I have not found birth records for the 2 oldest, Sigmund 1872 and Hedwig 1873 (I knew her! My aunt Hattie)
The next 3 children, Raimund 1876, Ferencz 1877, and Viktor 1879 were born in Dor, Sopron, Hungary.

Next, one child, Josephus 1881, was born in Zarany, Sopron, Hungary

My questions are:
1 which Baumgarten he is referring to? (I assume the one in Burgenland)
2 how far is Baumgarten from the above mentioned places in Hungary?
3 are Dor, Sopron and Zarany, Sopron the same place?
4 If his parents were Hungarian but he born in Austria, what is his nationality?

Many thanks to anyone who responds
