|Welcome to the Billmeyer/Lamm family page.We have been researching our families for the past 3 or 4 years.We have had a lot of help in our research from people who are doing their own, and have found new friends, even though we have never met. I speak especially about Joris Meijer,a volunteer at the Mormon Library somewhere in New Zealand, who, while doing his own research over many years, accumulated a lot of information on my branch of the Zotter Family. There have been others, a little here, a little there. If you think you might be related, read on and find out. We have over 900 names in our data-base, and are adding more all the time. Our families stretch from Austria and Germany to Australia and a lot of territory in between.|
