This is a piece of work we found, and thought it was colorful and entertaining, informative and insightful. It is not intended to offer ancestry of a direct line, but is offered instead as an ancestral history of Steiner/Stoner descendants from Germany.
When we started this adventure (and it has been that!) we didn't have a lot to work with. Finding and documenting each and every person in our family tree has been a challenge - and nothing has been taken for granted. We have truly adopted the philosophy that if it can't be proven with backed-up backup, then it may not be true - check it again...
We have endeavored whenever we can to capture more than just names and dates, and dry data. Whenever possible, we have visited living family members, and recorded the stories and family lore - of scoundrels, honorable deeds, tragedy, and adventure.
We are now many years into pursuing the Stoner family genealogy. With the technologies available in DNA research and the field of DNA Genealogy opening up new possibilities, we are continuing with the latest tools at our disposal. To that end, we are striving to document and identify the family DNA cousin lines.
If you are a researcher or a family member, or are interested in any of these Stoner Family lines, please contact us, we will help in whatever capacity we can! - Nick & Kristin (Stoner) Valkenhaus.
