Hitting the Brick Wall of Searching.

Surnames: Meyer Meyers Myers Simmons
Okay so, i've got as much information as i can out of my family in regards to the Myers tree (my grandfather) i'm working on, however i've hit a brick wall. I've managed to go as far back as my great great grandfather Andrew Meyer (the name was changed from Meyer to Meyers to Myers) marrying my great great grandmother Bridget Simmons, Andrew was a Sailor of German nationality. On the marriage record it states his birth place as Hamburg and his father's name as Andrew Meyer also.

For the life of me i can not go any further back, i have the worldwide account so can access the German records but i'm not finding anything. And to add to not being able to find anything before the marriage record and 1901 census, my great great grandfather died in 1904ish lost at sea.

For the love of my brain can anyone help, even just suggest, how i go forward from here? Is it even possible to take my tree beyond my great great grandfather?
