Dear Janice, Thank you for your reply. Yes very interesting that some MacKeel's ar of Dutch origin..I'd believe that since I looked everywhere on the web for any information on the MacKeel's but couldn't come up with anything. Do you know some History about them?. I don't hav my information on the MacKeels infront of me but I'll look for it and when I do I'll get back to you about my MacKeel's. Do you know what MacKeel means?. I know that "MAC" means Son of so "Keel" would mean???..... Thank you for your help!.
