Hi my name is Igor Kappel and I am trying to trace my family's lastname in the US. I have lived most of my live abroad and before seeing your name I thought that there were no Kappels in the US and that Kappel's had originated from Holland or Germany. I am not sure if we are related or not. Please let me know what you know of the Kappel last name history.

Thank you,

Igor Kappel

I believe I might have a line connected to yours. I have the lineage on a Freida Kappel from Iowa. They originally were from Ostrfreisland (Northern Germany).

Sheri did you find any more connections on your Freida Kappel. Did her Kappel line in Europe have any boat people. They lived on boats many times and serviced the rivers through out the Rhine area. We know our Kappels were invovled with the shipping industry.

As I understand it ( I am a Kappel by marraige )
My family were Russian immigrants, who fled Russia during the
Revolution because they were Tsarists.
