The ancestral home of the Schreiber family is in the German state of Bavaria. The name Schreiber is an occupational hereditary surname, a type of surname that was taken from a word describing or common to the profession of the original bearer. It is a name for a clerk. The name Schreiber is derived from the German word "schreiben," which means "to write" and was itself derived from the German word "schriben", and the Old German word "scriban." The Latin word "scribere" also means to write and could be a root word of this distinguished surname.

The Great Migration



Many Germans emigrated across the Atlantic to seek better lives in North Ameri ca. This great migration began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century. Resettlement was particularly attractive to those from Westphalia as a means of escape from poverty and religious persecution. For many Westphalian farmers, the chance to own one's own land was also a major incentive. The process of the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlements centered around Ontario and the Prairie provinces. Among them:
