The Buhler Family is a research effort to chronicle the ancestors and descendants of Peter Anton Buhler. In the year 1840 Peter Anton emigrated from the small town of  Altkrautheim  in the Kingdom of Württemberg (part of  present day Germany) to New Orleans, Louisiana. Peter Anton accompanied his father, stepmother, and siblings in this journey marking the beginning of Buhler family history in the New World. Anton was chosen as the focal point for this work because he left behind the only evidence found to date linking the immigrant family to the ancestral home in Württemberg. 

Source records containing genealogical evidence for Buhler and allied families are available here as documents, images, and transcriptions. Business, institution, and organization records, census records, church records, directories, immigration records, military records, newspapers, photographs, and vital records can be found in the Archives.1 Most documents at this site are in Adobe PDF format. You can download and install the latest version of Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® by selecting the link under the Archives section.

The Archives records have been analyzed to group individuals into their respective families. The family charts are linked together so readers may easily follow an ancestral line. The end result is a composite family history. The library contains materials to aid an understanding of the historical context of the Buhler family. A genealogical reference bibliography and a working bibliography of source materials used in this study are included.  Resources provides links to sites that have proven  most useful.
