1 BOWSER, Les STEEVES FAMILY STIEF, Heinrich Search for Heinrich Stief : A Genealogist on the Loose
Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, 2001, ISBN:1551093758 
BOWSER, Les. The Search for Heinrich Stief : A Genealogist on the Loose. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing Ltd, (2001). First Edition. Pp (2),[iii]-xiv,1-274. Illustrated. 8vo, brown card covers.

A history / genealogy of the Steeves family of New Brunswick.

"How did an undistinguished German farmer more than 250 years ago become the father of an extended new-world family? And how did one of his descendants, many years later, discover a vital part of the family history? Heinrich and Regina Stief left their homeland in 1748 and settled in Pennsylvania. From there, they and a band of fellow settlers migrated to the rough terrain around New Brunswick's Petticodiac River. Faced with starvation, frigid winters, and abandonment by their sponsors - among them Benjamin Franklin - the settlers defied the odds by not only surviving but prospering. Steeves descendants now number upwards of 150,000 worldwide." - from rear cover.
