Lohmeyer Families in Australia

In Australia today, the LOHMEYER spelling is dominant, with only a few LOHMAIER families and one LOWE-MEIER (although this may well be a conjoining of Lowe and Meier, rather than a true variant spelling of Lohmeier). There are no LOHMEIER families in Australia (2010 telephone book search).

The great majority of LOHMEYERs are resident in South Australia and most, if not all, of that clan can trace their roots back to Julius Lohmeyer who arrived in Australia from Minden, Germany in 1879. I have compiled his family tree and transcribed his fascinating autobiography where you can read more about his family and his extraordinary life. I live in Sydney and my ancestors are from Veltheim near Vlotho on the river Weser.
