I am looking for information on my maiden name Minkel. Please post a message if you have information. My grandfather John Minkel came to the U.S. from Lithuania/Poland or Germany around 1912. He had numerous brothers who changed the spelling of their surname to Minkiel. However, my grandfather kept the spelling of "Minkel". I have been told by several people that Minkel sounds like a Jewish surname; however, my grandparents were Christian when they arrived in U.S. and settled in the Pittsburgh area.
