It is probably the source of some of the errors in the Jason W. Firestone genealogy below.
Contrary to Jason's narrative, there is every reason to believe that the Berg and Thal Feuersteins did not come directly from Austria. They almost certainly came from somewhere else in Alsace (likely Dehlingen). A large part of his other information about the Berg and Thal Feuersteins is also incorrect, but his collection of Firestone documents is interesting.
Russell's later research [George Ely Russell, “Firestone Family of Frederick County, Maryland,” Western Maryland Genealogy, Vol. 9, No. 1 (Jan 1993) and Vol 9, No. 2 (April 1993)] on the Firestone family is considered to be very good. If there's one person who could be called the father of Firestone genealogy, it's George Ely Russell. Today's Firestone genealogy is built on a good foundation. Russell's research was given to the Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, Indiana. This genealogy is now on-line at the FIRESTONE GENEALOGY, 1993, RUSSELL link above.
