Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Schreiner family. The Germans began using hereditary surnames in the 12th century. Schreiner is an occupational name, which was derived from the kind of work done by the original bearer. It is a name for a joiner, specialized carpenter, or cabinetmaker. The name and its many variations come from the Latin word Scrinium which means carpenter or woodworker.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Schreiners to arrive in North America, and among them were:
