Hello, My name is Hub Bloebaum and I am a twin brother of John Bloebaum who submitted a reply. I also live in Holland. The family name 'Bloebaum' was orinal spelled 'Blöboimsche'or simular. It's means blooming tree. In early days noyone had a surname and got the name of the father, mother, or the place were labour is done. In this case our family worked on a farm in Germany. It had a special mark: blooming trees in the farmyard. So our family bacame known as the family of the blooming trees (Bloiboimsche= old german language. Later our antcester came to Holland (Amsterdam), probally by boat. When he registered himself he couldn't write. The man who wrote his name had done is fonetically. He wrote Bloebaum instead of the spoken name Blöibom.
This is what I know of the origan of our family name. It is also correct that in that time some of our antcesters left to go to America. Probally we all our related in some way or the other.
Note: my english writing is not always correct but i hope you've got the message.
