The Schmidt Family Home Page
welcome you as visitor number
to our family
history pages since December 18, 2004.
The earliest Schmidt ancestors we know of in our family
are August and Henrietta Anne
Schmidt, who immigrated to the United States in the 1870s from Germany and settled
in Philadelphia, PA. We are not certain of where in Germany
they originated. From what some members of the family have told us (repeating
German words they heard or that it was the beer-making area), we believe they
were from either Prussia or Bavaria, though it is possible that there are roots
in both areas, and it is also possible that they came from somewhere else.
