Re: Lies - Echternach, Grevenmacher, Luxembourg
That was probably Father Spexarth that contacted your father. He did a fine job of compiling a history of the Lies family but he ran into a road block with my ancestor Henrici Lies. A few years ago I got in contact with some of Loes cousins in Iowa and they gave me the lead I need to go back a few more generations. My ancestor Henrici and probably your ancestor came from Strassen Luxembourg. I haven't had the time to get the microfiche records for Strassen to finish the work. But my Henrici Lies was born Henrici Loess in Strassen. His grandfather was Dominque Loess and there were at least one Nicolas that could be ancestor to your line. That is where I would start searching if you have hit a dead in. Hope this helps and let me know if you find anything.
