Here is a puzzle for all you other Nantels!My father was born in Bielsko,Poland in 1917.As his father had to supply details of lineage(6 generations)for the German occupiers, we know that our 'line' is grounded on the Poland/Czech borders. Can anyone help with the origins of this surname? So many people have pointed out that it does not sound Polish!! I have noticed many Nantels in Quebec(and France) on web searches. Any comments appreciated.
