SCHULZ Family History

This is a surname deriving from the Middle High German for ?headman? of the village/community; the root word is from ?sculd?, or ?debt?, from which the modern German word ?schuld?, with transferred meaning of debt in the sense of ?guilt?. The full word would be ?schultheize?; the person so named would be responsible for the collection of debts from those living on the local lord?s land. Variant spellings are: Schulze, Schultz, Schultze &c

The surname is also found in Scandinavia, and among German Jews (Ashkenazic), and it is possible that it was used as a sobriquet for ?rabbi?.

Frequently found in Prussia, the Brandenburg and Berlin areas, as well as in Niedersachsen, Hannover and Hamburg, as well as Nordrhein-Westfallen and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern &c. Schulz is the 9th most popular surname in Germany.

Schulz emigrants landed in the U.S.A. from the early 18th century in New York and Philadelphia. By the time of the 1920 U.S. Federal Census, the majority were found in the states of Illinois, Wisconsin, New York, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

In the U.S.A. the surname stands at 1,374th with a population of 23,676, according to U.S. Social Security figures. The variant Schulze is ranked 3,863rd with a population of 8,444.

Two Famous bearers of Schulz

Karl Friedrich "Fritz" Wilhelm Schulz (1897 ? 1976) born in Silesia, was a General in the Wehrmacht in World War 11. He was a recipient of the Iron Cross in 1916, in World War 1. For his courageous leadership in the 2nd World War, he was awarded the Knight?s Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords.
Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000) born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was creator of the comic strip ?Peanuts?, which was published daily in 75 countries, and in 27 languages. Like his hero, Charley Brown, Schulz?s father was a barber, and his mother a housewife. The dog ?Snoopy? has become a modern icon, as has his master ?Charley Brown?.
