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.
