Excerpt from The Steen Family in Europe and America: A Genealogical, Historical and Biographical Record of Nearly Three Hundred Years Extending From the 17th to the 20th Century This book, begun many years ago, has been of gradual growth. It was the writer's first intention to prepare only a genealogical record of his father's immediate family; afterwards he undertook to enlarge its scope so as to include the descendants of his grandfather; and then again at his father's request he began to trace backward the line of ancestry as far as possible, in order to connect the European with the American family. In 1877 we visited Ireland, Scotland, England, Holland, etc., and while there obtained what information we could relative to the work, and began arranging the materials. The preparation of this book has been a work of great difficulty, which those only can appreciate who have themselves attempted to perform a similar task. Our early American ancestors, while engaged in subduing the forests and undergoing the hardships and dangers of frontier life, paid little attention to the recording of their family history; at least, but little has been preserved to posterity, or is now accessible. A great difficulty has also arisen in collecting information from the very many distant and scattered families in all parts of the land, by means of correspondence. While hundreds of letters of inquiry have been sent out, many remained unanswered; a large number of those received were very meager; and some of them almost illegible. In the search for information concerning our own branch of the family, we came into possession of much of the genealogy of other branches, which we thought ought to be preserved, and this has led still further to the enlargement of the work.
