Yeager Genealogy & History

Yeager is a German name, though mainly found in the US. It is most likely a transliteration of the German surname J�ger. That surname was derived from the German Jage, itself derived from the Old German jagen, meaning to hunt. Thus, Yeager (or J�ger) most likely began as an occupational name given to a hunter, though perhaps it was a nickname given to people known for being a good hunter. Yeager family history in America is first recorded with Johannes Yeager (Pennsylvania 1743), though the German spelling obviously goes back much further, even to 1376. Yeager genealogy includes Chuck Yeager, the earliest human who broke the sound barrier.
