Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Buchberger family. The Buchberger surname evolved as a local name for a family that lived in Bavaria. The surname Buchberger 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. Buchberger is also traceable to the German towns named Buch and Buchenwald and natives of these towns often adopted the name as their own.

Buchberger Early Origins



The surname Buchberger was first found in Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times.

The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Buchberger or a variant listed above: settlers who traveled to and established themselves along the eastern seaboard of the United States and in Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries.
