To the best of our knowledge, the name Eisenbeiss dates back to the middle ages, when it was given to a group of Knights in Bohemia, who taunted their opponents by clenching a sword between their teeth.

Contemporary definition:
Eisenbeiß (eyes-en-byes): A person, or persons, who gather every three years to eat kuchen, talk, dance, talk, reminisce, talk, eat, talk about eating, and eat while they talk. (it is suspected that the sword was so placed in an attempt to stop all that talking!)

The Research
Clyde Eisenbeis began researching the Eisenbeiss name in 1980 by writing letters to various Eisenbeiss families throughout North Dakota and South Dakota. Over the next couple of decades the research expanded in an attempt to record every Eisenbeiss that ever lived in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and the rest of the world. During that time, hundreds of people joined in the research and made contributions to the genealogy lineage.
Special acknowledgement is given to Clyde Eisenbeis of North Dakota, Albert Eisenbeiss of Germany, Henri Eisenbeis of France, and the late Christian D. Eisenbeis of California for their long term commitment to this extensive effort.
