This site documents genealogical information centered around the Steier family. It is based on research and interviews that in some cases involved educated guesses. Please help ensure the accuracy and completeness of this database by notifying the author of any errors or omissions.
To see a complete listing of persons in this database, click one of the listing links at left. In addition to names, the table shows birth, death and source material data where applicable and available.
Alternatively, choose a family name in the selection box to display the immediate family of a representative of that family.
There are two formats for viewing the trees:
- Cascading lists - This simple display should work on all browsers. Clicking on a name shifts the focus to that person. Clicking on the icon () at the beginning of each line expands or collapses that subtree. When viewing the page for a specific person, three kinds of trees are available: immediate family (parents, siblings and children), progenitors and descendents. Because the descendents tree can be very large, siblings and cousins are grouped by last name, with the number in each group shown. You can choose between these options using the grey menu bar.
- Fancy trees - This format is prettier and sometimes easier to scan but it does not work on all browsers. (It seems to work on Forefox and older versions of Internet Explorer, but not on newer versions or Chrome.) Switch to fancy trees by checking the box on the menu bar. The family tree for any person can be displayed by clicking on the icons ( ) next to the person's listing. Clicking shows the person's immediate family, shows the person's descendents, and shows the person's progenitors. Here too, because the descendents tree can be very large, siblings and cousins are grouped by last name, with the number in each group shown.
Note regarding sources: Many sources were used in compiling this data. To see the source for a piece of information, move the mouse pointer over the displayed value. In most cases a tool tip will appear that identifies the source for that value. Where multiple sources are available, some of which may be contradictory, only the most reliable source and value is displayed.
