Welcome to the Stenoien Family Web Site Home Page! My name is Randy Stenoien and this ambitious project is now several years old. As I previously stated, my intentions are to share with you our collected family history information (including family trees, anecdotes and stories, world history as it pertains to our ancestors, photos and ultimately audio/video presentations) and maintain current family web sites.
To everyone: thank you for all of your interest and help!
Please continue to send me information about yourselves and your families (you merely need to send text, photos etcetera and I can create your own web page which can be accessed on the Internet). I hope to make it possible for the widely dispersed members of our family to get to know each other a little better.
This is a friendly site. The Stenoien family has always displayed Norwegian virtues of privacy and mutual respect. I have no desire to offend anyone. If you feel that any of the material on this site is either inappropriate or violates your sense of privacy, please e-mail me and the information will be immediately deleted.
"Memory is the most paradoxical of the senses, at the same time so powerful that even that the most fleeting impressions can be stored, forgotten completely, and then reproduced in perfect detail years later, and yet so unreliable that it can play us completely false." (Peter Fenwick, M.D. neuropsychiatrist, Institute of Psychiatry of London). It is incredible the number of contradictory stories one digs up over time, from oftentimes reliable sources. My intentions are to present the truth; I apologize for any shortcomings and welcome well-informed corrections.
