Scheiber Early Origins



The surname Scheiber was first found in northern Germany, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century on the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the five hundred-year process of developing the German nation. Chronicles first mention descendents of the northern German families who early on moved deep into the south. Listed are Hainrich "aus der Scheiben" of Tirol in 1369, Hensel Scheybel in 1379, and E. Schyblin of Wuerttemberg in 1450.

The Great Migration



Much of German history has been shaped by the state of Prussia. It was an enduring military power until after the Second World War. At that time, the state was abolished altogether and its land divided between the Soviet Union, Poland, East Germany and West Germany. While some Prussians were content to remain in those countries, others moved away, many of them migrating to North Ameri ca. They entered the United States mostly through Philadelphia, moving on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Others went to Canada, settling on the prairies and in the province of Ontario. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were:
