I would like to thank you for visiting our online community at Butzke History.
Our mission is to connect family history to current generations through the preservation of historical materials and heritage to leave a legacy for future generations.
The site started in the summer of 2018 with the goal of documenting the origins, history, and heritage of the Butzke family. I believe that it is important for us to know where we come from and to preserve the memories of our ancestors. It is equally important to share any knowledge gained and that collaboration on any research should be embraced.
Genealogical research has come a long way with the advent of the Internet. It is now possible to search original records, electronic databases, blogs and wiki sites which incorporate evidence, photographs, maps, newspaper articles along with a wealth of other information resources.
Our goals are to document and share our ongoing research into the Butzke family and related families. We will also strive to provide resources that can assist others in tracing their own family history with a specific emphasis on the challenges of tracing German ancestry.
