|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
|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
and share it with him (and
me too, please?). Corrections are always welcome and please do
contact me at
if a correction is necessary.
|NOTE: As you probably
know, Stiefel translates to Boots in English. They
are used interchangeably on this website.
