The Folker Genealogy One-Name website at http://www.folker.co.uk contains the collected data on the Folker name and variants and features some family biographies and charts. However, detailed profiles and biographies of my own branch of the Folker family can be found on my Family History Archive website at http://www.14november1940.com/. This site is the main target of my activity and contains a full list of surnames associated by marriage and comprehensive biographies on some closely connected families.
