NOOOO, so far as I know we ain't related, however, prove me wrong, or whatever.Regarding the Book it is called,The Bankers of America by Laurens Matyse Bancker put out in 1909.Ask any library of any size where the closest book is and ask for inter-library loan.You can then see this in what miserable shape it is in.You can always call this up from World Family Tree index disks and see just what disks have it on.I shall eventually have this all compiled on my hd just in case.The book dates back to 1500.Wow???Not really,prior to that the netherlands was known as Friesland, and populated mostly by germans as was every nook and cranny of Europe.Besides, the records that go back to 1500 are all that remains after a castle fire.This name was Bancker in the Netherlands and the "C" was added to help others tell that family apart from us "damn German Bankers"Dropped by many as they came to this country, and some groups thinking of adding the "C" again as them "Damn German Bankers" are getting to be everywhere.
Email me for anything further.
