The start of the Twentieth Century found Baldwin a thriving farming town. The new generations being born were truly American, speaking without foreign accents and proficient in English. With that came inter-marrying between the different groups of Europeans living here, especially the Norwegian, Dutch, German, and other mostly Lutheran groups. The records in these years reflect that greater diversity, and trace our forebears' experiences back to two world wars and through the Great Depression. The books used for recording are still written in Norwegian though as the years passed, fewer and fewer people could speak Norwegian.
