Richter Genealogy & History

Richter is a German surname, from the Old German rihtoere, which means "to make right"; this was used as an occupational name for a judge or local arbiter, a position held by someone trusted in the community. Eventually in some areas it shifted to mean someone fully employed as the head of the village. Richter family history starts with the enrolling of Hugo Richters in Eblingen's town charts in 1279. Richter genealogy includes many renowned people, such as Nobel laureate in physics Burton Richter, comedian Andy Richter, and Richter scale co-creator seismologist Charles Richter.
