Sound Genealogy and Ethymology

Dear "Family Members",

it is nice to see, that some people who do not really know where they came from, try to close this gap on a very high level.
"Coll" means head, derived king, mountain head, even then derived as Kohl, the cabbage head. In Spain, in France and in Switzerland, even in the Canary Islands and in California a "Monte Coello" is common.
Especially, I like my scottisch McColl's.
Therefore, I propose to send you all my genealogic data, which are complete up from 1720 as the Köll line is concerned. But till now I have now idea, why I do not know about the severe impact of the Kölls in Southern Tirolia. Everybody, or everybody, is namend there Peter Köll, as me.

Please visit us in Germany

signed. Peter Köll
