Re: Lemmer...looking for info on my history

In Reply to: Re: Lemmer...looking for info on my history by Phyllis Holtz Smith of 164

I have traveled to the Netherlands and there is a town there called Lemmer. It was founded in the 1600s and there is also a boat museum there with a Lemmerster boat. This family of Lemmers were obviously in the business of building boats. I am trying to connect my ggrandfather who immigrated in 1872 as per family records from variously Luxembourgh and or Germany. Those borders were quite fluid during the many wars. Good luck!
