SCHINDLER Family History

Recorded as Schindel, Schindl, Schindler, Schindler, Schindel, Schindelmann and the transposed dialectal variant Synder, this is a Germanic occupational surname of the medieval period. It originally described a layer of roofs or a maker of 'shingles', the latter being wooden tiles still used in many parts of the world, as amongst other attributes, they possess great insulation faculties. Not surprisingly this is one of the earliest of all surnames, being first recorded as early as the year 1248, when Counradus Schindelere is given as being the burger of Uri in Switzerland, whilst a few years later in 1266 Cunradus Schindeler appears in the charters of Gersbach, Germany...
