About the Project

The Zbin Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Zbin name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Zbin name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Zbin's), by time period (18th Century Zbin's), or by topic (Zbin DNA, Zbin Occupations, Zbin Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

A fairly rare name. Some other spellings (or typos) I've seen in various research is: Zben, Sbin, Czbin, Czben, Sben, Zbyn and others.

The surname here is related to a group of Zbin's that immigrated to the U.S. in the late 1800's and early 1900s. For some reason, Cleveland, OH is the epicenter of their migration to the U.S. In early immigration documents, their original country appears variously as Austria, Hungary, or the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Currently it would be Slovakia, formerly Czechoslovakia. Some early Census records list them as "Slovaks."
