The Utermohlen name appears in three main versions in Germany:

  • Utermöhlen -- Göttingen and the villages south and west, since before 1400

see attached sketch list

  • Utermöhle -- from Schorborn about 1750, a center of glass manufacturing
  • Utermöhl -- from Lübeck in northern Germany, since at least 1500

Whether all of these families are related is under investigation.  Male Utermohlens are encouraged to participate in the Y chromosome study at Family Tree DNA.


For a partial list of American families, see here.
