Was your family Catholic or Evangelical Lutheran? If they were Catholic, I would imagine that they were from the area around Danzig were quite a few Catholic Konkels were from. My family was from Kreis Rosenberg, on the east side of the Vistula, near Marienwerder. They were Lutheran, but may have been earlier from the Danzig area. Some Konkels are considered to be Kashubians. The name is definitely Slavic in origin. Hope this helps a little.
