This discussion is of interest to me.
We were recently in East Poland. While in Cycow and while our guides were
showing us the building that was the Lutheran church, my brother-in-law was
wandering around the property. He took a photo of an individual that looked
like the twin to my father. Many Welkes lived in the Cycow area until
expulsion. I'm not sure what to think about this, or how to find out who
that was and/or if there are Welkes in that area. If I had seen the man
myself, I certainly would have spoken to him.

Not all Germans were expelled.
A lot of them remained in Central Europe. You will find a chart in this
Wikipedia article (Germans remaininig in Central Europe in 1950):
On the German website
you can find the following numbers:
Eastparts of the German Empire:
Refugees and expelled persons: 6.944.000 Dead and missing: 1.255.000
Remaining at home: 1.101.000
Hope this helps.
