According to Mecklenburg Urkundenbuch, the village was first mentioned in 1230 as Jamene. On 1 July 1950 it merged with Wolde, as autonomous municipality, in the new one of Gressow, merged in 1961 into the current municipality of Gägelow.
Jamel is located at the end of a secondary road departing from the Bundesstraße 105, between Gägelow (7 km (4.3 mi) far, in the east) and Grevesmühlen (11 km (6.8 mi) far in the west). It is 17 km (11 mi) far from Wismar, 44 km (27 mi) from Schwerin and 60 km (37 mi) from Lübeck.
According to Der Spiegel, it is populated almost entirely by neo-Nazis and far-right extremists. A signpost near the main road pointed to Vienna, Paris, and Braunau am Inn—the birthplace of Adolf Hitler. In April 2011 the administrative court at Schwerin confirmed the order of the head official of Amt Grevesmühlen-Land, that the sign corresponds to the definition of Volksverhetzung (hate crime) and has to be removed.
