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

submission from my cousin Danielle Feigenbaum (the great-great-granddaughter of
Moritz Steinschneider) we now have a photo and German article on

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:
Steinschneider (b. approx. 1759)
Hermann Steinschneider (b. 1760)
Gabriel Steinschneider (b. approx. 1760)
Selig Steinschneider (b. 1759)
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).

Kergomard, we have added more details to the
Steinschneider outline report.
