Welcome to Buktenica.com

Members of the Buktenica family take pride in the uniqueness of their surname. All people bearing this name are related either by blood or marriage. There is minimal documentation on the name Buktenica. However it is understood that the Buktenica name commenced with Matteo Kuparich, born on Solta, Croatia in 1730.

Upon his marriage Matteo changed his surname to Buktenica. His son, Ivan Buktenica, who was born in 1765, is believed to be the first male born with this surname. It is regrettable that over time members of the Buktenica family have spread across the globe and gradually lost contact with each other.

It is hoped that bringing together information about the family on this website will encourage members of the Buktenica family to make contact.
