I have been unsuccessful in locating information on the German surname Lipsdorf.
It has been recorded as Lip or Lipp – and interestingly enough this is an English surname with ancient origins. It derives from the pre-7th century word lippa meaning lip. Various surname dictionaries describe this name as being a medieval nickname, presumably either for somebody with prominent lips, or perhaps using it to describe a person who talks a lot!
Dorf is simply a German word meaning village. Thus Lips+dorf = Lips Village.
The research on the Lipsdorf family is just beginning. I will be concentrating my efforts on the following people and their families:
Franz Herman Lipsdorf (1881-1947) and wife Wilhelmine Augusta Anna Roestel
Anna Marta Lipsdorf (1906-1981) and husband Kurt Willy Geier
