The ancestral home of the Sneider family is in the German state of Bavaria. The name Sneider 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 person who worked as a tailor. This name is derived from the Old German word "snidanaere," which refers to a cloth cutter or a clothing tailor.

Sneider Early Origins



The surname Sneider was first found in the Palatinate, in the south of Germany, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the growth of the nation.

The Great Migration



Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Sneider, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early:
