Chemnitz, Germany, home of the Lorentz family.  Hans LORENTZ was born about 1608 in Bucholtz, Chemnitz, Sachsen, Germany.  The LORENTZ family were Catholics in the early days, residents of Sachsen, Germany. There have been a number of surname variations of the spellings, especially after Johannes Lorentz emigrated to America, but the American version settled mostly on Lowrance.  Descendants came to America and eventually to Georgia, some settling in DeKalb County. The genealogy is traced and available to members of <a href="">Georgia Pioneers</a>
