I am descended from a John Eichel and Mary Boutillier of Nova Scotia, Canada. John was probably one of the German Soldiers brought over to fight on behalf of Britain around the beginning of the 1800s. He ended up in Nova Scotia.
I don't have tons of information about him prior to that.
However, I do have in my hot little hands a rather complete paper copy of this family and many of its lines from 1785 to around 1942.
It will probably take me quite some time to get it all off paper - but if someone ends up on here looking for an Eichel or Oickle/Oicle of Nova Scotia, drop me a line. There is an excellent chance that I have something for you.
