About Our Family Research


My dad, Larry Meyer, and I are researching our anscestry.We have found that we are Meyers only by name, not blood. As far as we know we have Stoebe blood, Wiekman blood, Hollenburg blood, and possibly Sanders blood. A good deal of our history seems to be surrounding Hanover, Germany. We have reason to believe that Johann Wiekman may have been an important or noble man in Hanover. He was born around 1850, and died between October of 1873 and 1881. We believe he was killed in war. He married Anna Maria Luisa Sanders? on October 30, 1872. They had my great grandfather, Henry Herman (Wiekman) Meyer in 1874. After Johann Wiekman died, Maria Luisa remarried Henry Wilholm Meyer. Meyer was born in Osmaburck, a small village near Hannover. None of their children survived past childhood. By coincidence, the Wiekmans were living in Hanover around the same time as one of their future inlaws, Louisa (maiden name unknown) Hollenburg. All of this is on my paternal grandfather's side of the family. Our information is at places scattered and unclear, and we do't have very much of it. If you have any information that could help, please email me.
