Meyer/Maier and Barthel Family Genealogy

FAMILY ORIGINS

The Meyer (Maier) and Barthel families originated in the Bas-Rhin region of Alsace, France. The families were Roman Catholic.

This branch of the family was from the town of Riedseltz, which has a present-day population of about 1,100. Riedseltz is in the department of Bas-Rhin and its canton is Wissembourg. Riedseltz history, traditions, and photos are available OnLine, thanks to Charles Sheridan and Linda Gartner.

The family likely spoke German, but the civil records were largely in French. In the below family tree, "Auguste" is "Augustin" or "August." Similarly, "Anne-Marie" is "Anna Maria."

SURNAME MEANINGS

Barthel is derived from a pet form of the Germanic personal name Bart, a short form of Berthold or Bartolomaeus.

Meyer is derived from the Middle High German meier, a status name for a steward, bailiff, or overseer. Originally it denoted a village headman, from Latin maior or "greater" (superior).
