|Welcome to the Steinschneider Home
(A website dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of our
Family News in 2010:
12/20/2010 We have created a hypothetical outline
report of various Steinschneider lines that
appear to fit together. There are five Steinschneiders that could plausibly be
the sons or nephews of a Wolf Steinschneider (b. abt. 1700) from Prostejov. If
these individuals are indeed related in this way, that would help join several
currently disparate lineages. Based on current research, the relationships are
highly likely; if not exactly as shown in the
report, nonetheless very similar in truth once confirmed via official
12/20/2010 The following photos were provided by Danielle Feigenbaum.
These are images of a spouse of a direct descendent, and direct descendants, of
Steinschneider (1816 - 1907):

11/20/2010 Over the years we have received emails from Dr. Paul
Matsenbaugh, who is a descendant of Morris Steinschneider, who emigrated to
England as a teen in 1919 and fought in the Boer War and World War I for the
British Army. Morris's papers indicate that he was from Russia, but he always
told his children that he was from Poland. Based on the information we have
received, a new outline report has been created
here. Additionally, Dr. Matsenbaugh provided us with these photos:

10/7/2010 Danielle Feigenbaum has provided some extraordinary
Moritz Steinschneider. Although we have seen these published elsewhere, this
is the first time scans of what appear to be the originals have ever been made
10/3/2010 We've now merged what were two lines into one under the
report for the Steinschneider descendants
of Grabowiec and Ostrowiec thanks to additional information provided by Jan
Millner Hecht Zimet over the weekend.
10/1/2010 Thanks to the ongoing contributions of Jan Millner Hecht
Zimet, who has kept in contact with me for over 10 years (thank you for your
incredible patience, Jan), I have finally been able to reconstruct some basic
Steinschneider lines from the towns of Ostrowiec and Grabowiec Poland. With
time, these lines will certainly grow and merge. They can be found in the newest
9/6/2010 In January of 2007 we received some very interesting
information from Steinschneider descendants in France and England. Here is the
death announcement of
Steinschneider (1828-1902). The photo and death certificate can be found on
a page dedicated to data pertaining to
A photo of Dr. Heinrich Steinschneider alongside his death announcement.

9/3/2010 Thanks to information provided by Charlie Stone, the Isaias
Steinschneider outline report has been
updated. We've also added Dr. Ted Feder as member to the list of M.D.s, Ph.D.s,
and D.D.S.s in the family on the Steinschneider facts
Additional photos submitted by Danielle Feigenbaum will be added
5/17/2010 It is with the deepest sadness and I regret that I announce
the death of Maria-Louise (Musch) Steinschneider. She will be greatly missed.
