The ancestral home of the Schriber family is in the German state of Bavaria. The name Schriber 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 Schriber 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.

Schriber Early Origins



The surname Schriber was first found in northern Germany, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later be associated with noble families of great influence, having many distinguished branches, and becoming noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

The Great Migration



For many Germans, emigration to North America was an inviting alternative to the trials of life in the old country. From the mid-17th into the present century, thousands of Germans migrated across the Atlanti c. They capitalized on the chance to escape poverty and persecution, and to own their own land. After 1650, Germans settled throughout the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also landed in Canada, settling in Ontario or father west on the rich land of the prairies. Among them:
