Hallo Folks, searching around the net I finally found your site and I would like to leave greetings at least. Actually my name is written Völckers (o with dots) and I come from germany (at the moment I am living in Mulhouse, France). As far as I know my family branch of Völckers comes from the coast of the baltic sea but I am not sure, since we moved around a lot. My great-great grandfather was a building contractor in Hamburg. In contrast to your mails about my name-alikes my ancestors used to be protestant - but anyway everyone of my family that I know (or knew) personally left church long ago.
