Butare family name

Postby paulb4333 » 30 Apr 2009, 23:04

:D Hello,
I'm trying to find out some info about my family name, Butare. We have no known relatives other than immediate family, and the family name will die out in this generation.
My name is Paul Butare
Father's name Joseph Butare
His father (born in Calabria Italy), is John Butare

We fear that the name was changed inadvertently somewhere along the line.

Anyone out there with any information?

Thanks
Paul

This may be a possibility since there are no Butare listed in the Ellisisland.,org website and neither in the Italy surname distribution at www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi which willenabvle you to try to locate a correct surname if you feel that there may have been a mispelling somewhere in time or place.

As things now stand there is no listing in the Italian surname dictionary nor is there any variation for Butare stemming off another surname. The Ellisisland.org website for Butare has many variations which you should research. It is quite possible that Butare may be a local surname or an italianized versionof an imported foreign surname

The word dictionary has no listing for Butare but has several meanings if the word become buttare with a double T. Try this inthe surname distributionmentioned above and also try Buttare in the www.paginebianche.it telephone guide for Calabria putting in Buttare. =Peter=

Welcome to IG!!
If you can provide further details, we can better direct your search, determine the correct spelling of your surname and lead you to the exact town of origin.

Have you collected any US records? Where did the family immigrate to?
Massachusetts?? Do you have spouses name? Maiden name? Known children? Birth date or year for any? Death dates? Did they marry here or in Italy? Did they naturalize? Register for either the WW1 or WW2 draft?

Do you know John's given name? GIOVANNI? GIANNI? This could help pinpoint early records.
