Lajara/Ohlemacher
I am researching my family surnames...any help is appreciated! LAJARA, family comes from Dominican Republic. OHLEMACHER is from German descent, may have a meaning relating to hole-digger, grave digger. Thanks!

Ohlemacher means 'maker of oil'. Ohle is an old form of the word Öl (Oel).
