Welcome to the Woll Family genealogy site. This journey began with one man, Peter Woll, who left his homeland in Sulzbach, Saarland, Germany in 1837 to begin a new life in Pennsylvania, USA. Peter's sister, Catharina, had already been in America with her husband, Ludwig Blasius, for nearly four years at the time. Family history states that he met his future wife, Magdalena Jung (Young) of St. Ingbert, Germany, while waiting to board the ship for America. Peter and Magdalena married and lived in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and had several children whose descendants are scattered around the United States.This is a collaboration between different branches of the Woll family. Peter Boyer Woll moved his family to Cleveland, Ohio in the mid 1890s, and Lewis Woll moved to Montana shortly thereafter. Still, a large number of the Woll descendants remained in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. Recently, a family member travelled to Sulzbach, Germany and was fortunate to meet a local individual who helped find the link back to the family in Germany in the early 1800s. Those ancestors are included here. We invite anyone who is interested in or related to this family to join us in compiling the history of this family, both here in the US and in Germany.
