My ancestors had also been innkeepers in Untersteinach near Kulmbach during the 17th and 18th century. I also know the booklet written by Karl Ernst Poehlmann, but I have up to now no copy. My grandfather Christian Poehlmann (teacher in different villages) was born in Weidenberg, his father Sigmund Heinrich Poehlmann (cattle trader and farmer in Weidenberg) was born in Warmensteinach, his father was Johann Poehlmann, who came from Stammbach. As I know his father came from Untersteinach near Kulmbach. I am familiar with history in the middle age of the Bayreuth region and I have certain knowledges about the old documents in the archives (mainly in Bamberg, but also in Bayreuth, Nuremberg and others). If you are interested in the two mentioned published documents of the time around 1400, I can send them to you, each one costs approx. 13 Euro plus postage. I wrote also several essays about the history of that region, if you are interested, I can send you also copies.
I live with my family in Germany in the Rhein Main region and work in Frankfurt am Main, but in the mid of this year I will move back to Franconia (near Hof).
If you are interested in further information please write me an e-mail. May be we can come in closer contact.
