Schaefer Genealogy & History

Schaefer is a German occupational surname, from the Middle German schafer, which means shepherd, and is in turn derived from the Middle High German schaf and Old High German scaf, for sheep, using the -er suffix to denote a person's action. It is also written as Schafer and Schaffer. Schaefer family history begins with Dietriech Schaffer, noted in the Early Medieval Records of Germany in 1327. Schaefer genealogy includes many notable individuals, such as two-term Maryland Governor and Comptroller Bill Shaefer, North Dakota Governor and Bush Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer, and Houston Astros center fielder Jordan Schafer.
