To my knowledge all members of Steckinger, Stekkinger and Stekinger families originate in the town of SELESTAT in the Alsace region of France. They went into diaspora at some time during the late 1600's and the mid 1700's (as, of German extraction they were probably in fear of living under French rule, which came about then). Members of this family ended up in Germany, Holland, Java, USA, France, Argentina, and possibly Hungary.
I am trying to find information that links those in diaspora, and those family members on record who lived in the Alsace up until the above period. If anyone has any information regarding the period mentioned above (names are so important!0 please get in contact with me.
