|As a result of recent
research by Lewis Ellingham, it has been determined that Michael
Stieffel/Stiefel/Boots is not the ancestor of this Adam Stiefel,
as was previously believed. This misinformation is widely
published on the internet and was previously accepted and was
published here as well. This is wrong.
Lewis Ellingham has found
and documented (in Germany) the true ancestry of Adam Stiefel
which is presented on the revised pages of the BOOTS line.
Lewis is a trusted researcher. It is his insistence on facts
that led him to dig until he found them. You will find that
much of this documentation is in German. If this is difficult
for you, you might try translating it (roughly) at
GOOGLE Language Tools,
Babel Fish, or
Free2ProfessionalTranslation (all free).
|Nearly all of the content
for the BOOTS line is the result of the lengthy and painstaking
work of Lewis Ellingham, who has so kindly shared it with me.
|Lewis has generously
allowed me to present his work here to share with you as well.
|If you have any new
information that should and could be added, please contact
Lewis Ellingham and share it with him (and me too,
please?). Corrections are always welcome and please do
contact me if a correction is necessary. You will find
contact info on the left or bottom of each page.
NOTE: As you may know, Stiefel translates to
Boots in English. They are used interchangeably on this
website as they apply.
