The German state of Bavaria is the ancestral home of the Beukkberg family. Beukkberg is a local name, first used as a surname for someone who lived in Bavaria. The surname Beukkberg is composed of the two elements Buch and Berg, which are also surnames themselves. The portion Buch is a local surname that is derived from the German word buohe, which means beech tree. This name was given to a person who lived by a beech tree, a beech wood, or a beech grove. The name Buchholz, which means beech grove, is also the name of several places in Germany. Beukkberg is also traceable to the German towns named Buch and Buchenwald and natives of these towns often adopted the name as their own.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Beukkbergs to arrive in North America, and among them were: settlers who traveled to and established themselves along the eastern seaboard of the United States and in Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries.
