We were so very fortunate to have made friends with Lomond & George Luhrs during the 1990s when we were collecting a lot of new information on our Luhrs ancestors. They contributed a lot to our family histories. They inspired and motivated us.
Lomond visited the United States many times and it was a real pleasure to spend time with him. He was on a global mission to find all the Luhrs everywhere he traveled and make as many connections among them as he could.
We talked with George by phone and exchanged many emails. It was as though we'd known them both our whole lives. Lomond and George became very good friends as well, staying in contact over the years.
