Searching for my ancesters

Hello,
I just spend some time in the Internet trying to find out something about my family and maybe you can help me.
My fathers name is Karl-Heinz Rene Pichon, born in Berlin
1947. My grandfathers name was Franz Pichon, born 1911 in Königsberg, now Kaliningrad in Poland. My greatgrandfather hat a Pharmacy in Königsberg and as far as I know the father of my greatgrandfather was an Opera-Singer.
I was told that our family emigrated from france to Prussia during the religious war in France in the 16th century. They parted from the catholic part and became Hugenots. The catholic part of our family stayed in France and I was told one became a Baron (maybe because of his duties in the war). It´s supposed to be the Baron of the winery Chateaux Baron de Pichon in Bordeaux. We don´t know if this is true, but maybe you like to know all this for your forum and maybe I con get some halp or Information.
Cincerely,
Chantal Pichon
