have elected to put the Buerckner Family Tree back on the Web after being granted permission from Craig Buerckner who
with his wife Jenny researched the Buerckner Family in Australia. They went to a lot of trouble getting all the information and
Craig and Jennie wrote a book on the family as well (Aussie Branches from Carl Wilhelm Buerckner to 2001, the History of the
Buerckner families) they also organized a Buerckner Reunion in Tungamah, Victoria in 2001, which was well attended.
am including stories that Craig wrote about some of the Buerckner’s as well, including stories of the Buerckner’s in WWI and
WWII so all the credit for the family tree and stories on this website must go to Craig and Jenny. A lot of Buerckner Descendants
contributed information and photos and gave these to Craig and Jenny so that the reunion and the book would be a success, which it
am married to Susan Joy Buerckner, daughter of Frederick Buerckner and Josephine Dilia Doyle.

hope I haven’t made any mistakes in putting this tree back on the web, but you can bet there will be mistakes somewhere. If
anyone notices any mistakes or if they want any information added since this was done in 2001, please EMAIL
me with any corrections or new information.
Once again I thank Craig and Jennie for all the good work they did in compiling this Family Tree of the Descendants of Carl Wilhelm Buerckner, and for giving me permission to put it on my Website.
