We have a Steger family line from Illinois. The most recent is from Chicago. They came from southern Illinois, around Danville. So far I have a Harold, Earnest, Charles and others. Let me know if you have any of these Stegers in your line. Thanks, Barbara

Barbara:
My fathers birth name is John Steger, although it later became Jones. His father was Peter Steger, who died about 7-1/2 years ago. He resided in Addison, Il. Peter had a brother named Michael, who died in January 1978. Michael also lived in suburban Chicago.
Michael had a son, Chuck, who lives out there also. I am the only smart one that moved away from that cold climate. I am 34 years old and live out in Long Beach, CA.

MICHAEL,

I DON'T HAVE MUCH ON THE STEGERS AS OF YET. I WILL HAVE TO DO SOME MORE CHECKING. THERE WAS A CHUCK THAT I KNOW OF, BUT HE WOULD BE IN HIS 90'S NOW. ALL I HAVE SO FAR IS EARNEST, HAROLD AND JULIA. WHY DID YOUR FAMILY GO THE "JONES" ROUTE? THAT IS SO GENERIC. STEGER SOUNDS SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING. WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT I FIND OUT. THANKS FOR REPLYING. BARBARA

Barbara:
The only reason my fathers name changed to Jones was because my Grandad (Pete Steger) allowed my Grandmothers next husband to adopt my Dad. Hence the name Jones.

I do think the name Michael Steger does add character but have not found the Jones thing to be of any hinderance.

Do you folks live out in Illinois?

Mike

MIKE,

SORRY, I DIDN'T MEAN ANYTHING BY MY QUESTION. I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS AN ODD CHANGE. BUT YOU HAVE ENLIGHTENED ME ON THE REASON. WE USED TO LIVE IN ILLINOIS, CHICAGO AND DOWNERS GROVE. WE NOW LIVE IN KANSAS, A JOB CHANGE. I HAVE JUST STARTED ON THE STEGER LINE SINCE MY AUNT DIED. I HAVEN'T GOTTEN VERY FAR. I HOPE WE CAN BE OF HELP WHEN I GET GOING. THANKS FOR REPLYING. BARBARA

Mike (and Barbara):

Your dad is my cousin. I don't think our Steger's are related to Barbara.

Mike Steger (Sr.)(1882-1959) and Mary Anna Folk (1891-1963) were both from an area of Hungary that is now part of Romania. They arrived in America in 1908 and 1911, respectively. They lived in Chicago until abt. 1924, when they moved to Lombard.

They had 7 children: Mike (Jr.), Sophie "Sylvia", Theresa, Joseph, Peter (your grandfather), Anna (my mother), and Mary.

There is a town just SW of Chicago, named Steger, Illinois. We are not related to these Stegers, as far as I can tell. My daughter had a teacher with a last name of Steger. She mentioned her husband's family was from Steger, IL.

Say hi to your dad from me.

Mike- My mom told me about a son who was born to my dad, Rick Steger, about 6 years before I was born in 1978. He was adopted by another man. My dad's sister, Jan, still lives in Downers Grove, Il. Could you be related to me ? I'm desperate to find any family. I need to find my dad, he has been out of my life since 1980. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!

Jessica,

I just noticed your message and want to tell you that I have a cousin from Chicago by the name of Richard Steger. (Could be Rick for short). He had two brothers but no sisters. I too, would like to find my family that has been lost for so many years. There are many Stegers in our family that we are not aware of. Let me know if you find any connection. You can reach me at TremblingT@aol.com. Thanks, Barbara
