Surnames: Bufka
I know of four different Bufka families: St. Louis MO, Wisconsin, Manistee MI, and mine in Leelanau County MI. None of us are related that I know of, although the MO and my family originated from Domazlice Bohemia.

Hi Norbert ~

My Bufka ancestors were also from this area. The town that we have listed is Zetschowitz, which is now called Cerovice. This town is near Domzalice, I am told.

My direct ancestor is Barbara Bufka, born in 1854 in the above town. She stayed in Europe, having moved to the Vienna, Austria area. Her brother, Martin Bufka, born in 1856, moved to Michigan, and then latter to Milwaukee, I believe.

Their parents were Adam Bufka and Elizbeth Pilla or Lilla.

I have also seen their Bufka name spelled as Buchta.

I would be interested in your ancestral information from Domazlice to see if we have any common ancestry.

Hello Norbert,

I have a 4th great grandmother Bufka who came from Radonice, Bohemia, which is not far from Domazlice.

This is a long time since you posted this, so it is entirely possible you are not on-line here. If you would get this, my regular e-mail address is I will send you more information.

Hi Norbert ~

There was also the group in Chicago and, in Wisconsin, there appears to have been a group in both the Milwaukee area and perhaps the Green Bay area.

The genealogy shows close ties of the Milwaukee, Manistee and Chicago groups. It appears that they first went to Manistee and then branches went to Chicago and Milwaukee.

I haven't seen the ancestral research of the St Louis, Green Bay and Leelanau County groups back to Europe. It would not surprise me if there are related a number of generations back.

Best wishes,

John Reindl
