Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Saenger family. The Germans began using hereditary surnames in the 12th century. Saenger is an occupational name, which was derived from the kind of work done by the original bearer. It is a name for a singer. The name probably evolved from the German word "sanger," and it indicates that the family has an historical association with the profession of singing ballads.

Saenger Early Origins



The surname Saenger was first found in the ancient walled city of Noerdlingen, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would play a prominent role in Bavarian history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Saenger or a variant listed above:
