2. [Father of Langwedel/Walle] LÜERS . This a documented database compiled with considerable assistance of a granddaughter of Johann Hinrich Lührs (b1873) who resides in Germany, and with a distant Beckröge cousin also living in Germany. Additional data was found at the Shelby County Historical Society in Illinois and in various other records available in the U.S. and in Germany by Vic Berecz and Joan Luhrs Berecz. She is another grandaughter of Johann Hinrich Lührs (1873-1964). Both Vic and Joan are both active contributors to the LFA project.
In Joan's family, the spelling of the family name changed from Lüers to Lührs during the first two decades of the 19th century. In this database, the most frequent spelling found in the church records is used for each person. But, for many individuals who lived in the transition period, the family name can be found with both spellings. Whichever way they are listed, rest assured that we are talking about the very same family.
Langwedel is a small town about 10 km NNW of Verden an der Aller -- an historically important city to the southeast of Bremen. For generations, much of this family line have lived in Walle (a village which was incorporated into Verden after WWII). Walle is about 7 km NNE of Verden. Both Langwedel and Walle are shown on the 1832 map.
