Klinedinst Surname History

The name Klinedinst comes from the German province known as the Rhineland. In pre-medieval times, the German people used only one name, but as the population increased, hereditary surnames became necessary for people to maintain unique identities. Klinedinst is a nickname surname, a style of name based on an eke-name, or added name, that described a characteristic of its original bearer. Klinedinst is a name for a small or short person deriving its origin from the German word "klien," which means "small."

Migration of the Klinedinst family to the New World and Oceana


Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Klinedinst, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early:
