We have been gathering information on our Poehls family and other related families for a few years and have posted an overview of our findings on the web at:
Families have appeared in Australia, Argentina, Chile, Mexico,Canada, Denmark, Sweden, and of course Germany. All roads seem to lead back to a common ancestoral homeland in Holstein Germany.
We would be happy to hear from any others researching the Poehls surname. Thank you
