Welcome to the Steinschneider Home Page
(A website dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of our genealogy.)

Family News in 2008:

12/31/2008 Another year has come and gone. Interestingly, 2008 marked the first decade of Steinschneider.com. My, how the time has flown.

Unfortunately, I have not had time to update the site as frequently has I would have liked. Nonetheless, many things have happened to the Steinschneider family this year. Primarily, my cousins Assaf Steinschneider and Danielle Feigenbaum have reconnected with their cousin David Fishlow, who is related to Leopoldine Fischlowitz.

Happy New Year to everyone. Hopefully, many new Steinschneider discoveries will be made in 2009.

6/6/2008 Thanks to a submission from my cousin Danielle Feigenbaum (the great-great-granddaughter of Moritz Steinschneider) we now have a photo and German article on Steinschneiderstra▀e (Steinschneider Street) in Dallgow-D÷beritz (a municipality in the Havelland district, in Brandenburg, Germany).

3/16/2008 There are currently four Steinschneider patriarchs who appear to have been born around the same time: Daniel Steinschneider, Hermann Steinschneider, Selig Steinschneider, and Gabriel Steinschneider. If these four men are brothers, this would connect the following four genealogies together:

Daniel Steinschneider (b. approx. 1759)
http://www.steinschneider.com/reports/outline_09.htm

Hermann Steinschneider (b. 1760)
http://www.steinschneider.com/reports/outline_11.htm

Gabriel Steinschneider (b. approx. 1760)
http://www.steinschneider.com/reports/outline_01.htm

Selig Steinschneider (b. 1759)
http://www.steinschneider.com/reports/outline_12.htm

Additional data is needed to definitively make these connections, but hope springs eternal.

Although the birth town of Hermann Steinschneider is Holleschau (Holesov, Czech Republic [see below]), its distance of only 41.8 kilometers from Prostejov convinces me that this family is connected to ours.

Furthermore, I believe that the Selig Steinschneider born in 1759 is the grandfather or great-grandfather of the Selig Steinschneider identified in the following genealogy:

Selig Steinschneider (b. appox. 1880)

The Selig Steinschneider shown immediately above is buried in the town of Brno (as is his wife), which is a town in which my family had land until my father’s twin brother sold it several years ago (after having it returned from the communist government).

3/15/2008 Thanks to the additional contributions of Daniel Kergomard, we have added more details to the Hermann Steinschneider outline report.

3/12/2008 Thanks to information provided by a descendant, we have been able to comprehensively update the Hermann Steinschneider outline report.
