Butzke family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2014.350.1

Consists of papers and photographs related to family of Julius, Netty, and John (Hans) Butzke, originally of Vienna, Austria. Includes papers from Julius's pre-war work as an accountant, Netty's pre-war work as a nurse (including service during World War I) and the official papers they collected to support their attempts to immigrate. Includes passports and other travel documents, and documents establishing their lives in the United States.

This collection is an excellent example of a small family collection related to immigration from Vienna to the United States. Pre-war documents establish the family’s life in Vienna, while also demonstrating Julius Butzke’s detailed attempts to collect genealogical records to assist with their eventual emigration from Vienna. The collection also details the family’s life in the United States. A large collection of family photographs inserted into a photograph album shows pre-war life in Vienna.
