Hi Bill.. could be connected .. Did your KANDELS immigrate to MD, PA , NJ , NY ? This is where mine immigrated in late 1890-1915.
I know some KANDELS (of German heritage) immigrated earlier to PA etc ..they were Protestant, Catholics.. Mine were Jewish , from Austria then to Galicia , Poland/ Russia > America. They may have "taken" a German Surname .. in the process. My father' immigration papers say , from "Novy Witkow (which is near Kiev Russia ,but he always said he was from Austria.
