Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Schriner family. The Germans began using hereditary surnames in the 12th century. Schriner 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



Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Schriner or a variant listed above:
