Where did the German Shinde family come from? What is the German Shinde family crest and coat of arms? When did the Shinde family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Shinde family history?

The name Shinde was born in the beautiful region of Bohemia, which is now part of Czechoslavakia. In the Middle Ages, Bohemia was a part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was characterized by the Feudal System. Before this era, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Many people, such as the Shinde family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Shinde was an occupational name for a roofer. The name Shinde is derived from the Old German word "schindel," which means "shingle" or "small pebbles."
