Some Brief Remarks

This site presents the ancestors of Ted Steele.

No genealogical infomation is worthwhile if it is not documented with an adequate source citation.  For that reason, I have included my list of sources on this web site. Please be aware, however, that this page is very large (about 2 meg).  if you click on a source code number, it may take a while for the source page to load.  Sorry, but that's how it works....

I welcome correspondence on this family, including (of course) corrections or additions. I am happy to share this information with other genealogical researchers who are pursuing these same lines.
