The LOEWENHEIM Surname Project
LOEWENHEIM and related surnames e.g. LOVENHEIM, LÖWENHEIM, including WANGENHEIM & DEWITZ. Predominantly looking at families of Jewish Ancestry, but all are welcome to join. There are several LOEWENHEIM lines, and DNA testing will reveal which are related. This is difficult through paper records as the families did not have inherited surnames before about 1800. The adoption of surnames means that related families can have different surnames, e.g three brothers adopted the surnames LOEWENHEIM, WANGENHEIM & DEWITZ in 1812 in West Prussia. LOEWENHEIM families can be traced back to various parts of Germany, parts of which are now in Poland, and to Hungary.
