Where did the German Schnabel family come from? What is the German Schnabel family crest and coat of arms? When did the Schnabel family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Schnabel family history?The Schnabel surname is a habitational name derived from any of several places in Germany, Bohemia, and Austria named Schneeberg. These place names derived from the German word "schnee," meaning "snow," and "berg," or "mountain."
Spelling variations of this family name include: Schneeberger, Schneeburg, Schnech, Scheewasser, Schneeweiss, Schnaberg, Schnabelburg and many more.
First found in Switzerland, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
