Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Lembach families that settled in the Volga German colony of Luzern. Both are recorded on the 1767 census in a list of Beauregard recruits, but their relationship to each other is not recorded there.

(1) Paul Lembach (age 34), a barrel maker (Fassbinder), and his wife Regina are recorded at No. 40 on the Beauregard List. They are recorded on the 1798 census of Luzern in Household No. Lz41.

(2) Anton Lembach (age 27), a barrel maker (Fassbinder), and his wife Margaretha are recorded at No. 41 on the Beauregard List. They are recorded on the 1798 census of Luzern in Household No. Lz35.

The 1767 Beauregard List records that both of these Lembach families came from the German region of Lohr.
