The Bölkow(Belko)and Steinfurth Families make up the trunk of the family tree on this site. But there are numerous branches of other families, which really make up the Tree. These two families became connected through the marriage of Ella Steinfurth and Fred Belko in 1907 in Kent Ohio. The Bölkow family emigrated to America from Drölitz, Recknitz Kreise, Mecklenburg- Schwerin in 1872 and lived on a farm in Farnham, NY. The family name was modified from Bölkow to Belko at the time of the birth of Fred Belko in 1873. The Steinfurth family came to America in 1872 from Lüssow, Franzburger Kreise, Pommerania, Germany. Through the late 1800's, they lived near one another on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio.
