About Our Family Research

My wife and I have been doing research on the Blum/Blume/Bloome. Starting with my G-G-grandfather John Blum. They moved here from Prussia I have been told. I have the famliy group sheet for him. John married Sophia Blumer? and they had 14 children. As far as I know they resided in Iowa then moved to Douglas County Nebraska. My Great grandfather Amil Blum? married Bertha Schroder and had four sons and a adopted daughter. They moved to the western part of Nebraska (Rushville). My Grandfather Adolph Blum married Vida Richardson and lived in Bayard Nebraska until they moved to Clarkston Washington. They had three sons and three daughters?

My dad Richard Allen Blum was born in Rushville Nebraska and married my mother JoDeen Baltes from Minatare Nerbaska. They had one daughter and three sons which one of them is me Jerry Blum. My parents moved to Ainsworth Nebraska where me and my siblings were born. My dad died in September of 1970 and my mom died April 1976. I then moved and lived with my Uncle Dennis Blum in Washington. Dennis is my dads younger brother.

I married my wife Cheryl Matthews April 23,1982. We have three children. a boy and two girls. No family reunions that I know of.
