STECH descendants from several different families have banded together to start the Stech/Steck/Steach Genealogy & DNA Project. The main purpose of the project is to confirm whether or not the various STECH, STECK, STEACH, STAKE, or STACH families with ties to Lancaster, Franklin and Westmoreland counties in Pennsylvania, to New York, Maryland, and other states, and to various localities in Baden, Germany, are actually related to each other. There may additional spelling variations of the surname not yet revealed. All men claiming descent in the paternal line are invited to participate in the DNA project.
In addition, we are attempting to build a genealogy database for future reference in STECH/STECK/etc research. ALL persons with an interest in STECH, STECK, STEACH, STAKE, or STACH genealogy are invited to participate in that part of the project.
If you are interested in participating in either part of this project, please contact the undersigned for additional information.
