Schmidt Genealogy & History

Schmidt is a German occupational surname, from the Middle German smitan, which means to smite, giving rise to the word schmid or schmidt, usually interpreted as someone working with iron, though it is unclear if that is in fact the case, especially since smitan itself has analogues in most European languages, indicating its extreme age. Schmidt family history enters the books with Johannes Schmitt, noted in Hamburg, at that time part of the German Empire, in 1268. Schmidt genealogy boasts such well-known people as Nobel laureate in physics Brian Schmidt, Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and Marine Corps General Harry Schmidt.
