A virtual Heimat center
So, come and learn about the Heimat of our family – come and visit Steinschönau on the web.
The purpose of the site is to
Provide a center for learning about the region
Support projects that would aid our collective endeavors
Support projects that would be a fitting tribute to our ancestors

lovely wife of 57 years
Isolde (nee Walter)
This site is dedicated to Erich Knechtel, a Steinschönauer and cousin to the keeper of the website. Erich was the patriarch of the Knechtel clan and generously shared with many the great documents and stories about Steinschönau that will eventually make it on to the website. Erich past on before seeing this site, so this is dedicated to his memory and his dedication to his family’s history. We will greatly miss the “Patriarch of our Clan.”
