I have recently commenced tracing my family tree and have established that Johannes (John) LEMBCKE departed from Hamburg, Germany and arrived in Victoria, Australia in February, 1855. He was 30 years of age at the time of his arrival. He married in Australia some years later.
I am trying to establish his parents and if he had any brother's or sister's. I have been informed that the Lembcke family had numerous children and that some left Germany for the American Gold Rush and then others for the Australian Gold Rush in the 1850's.
