NedBuratovich.com has been revived as a repository for Buratovich Family Stories. Immediate family members, Luke, Frances, Ned and Nick primarily; then Bea Jessica, Nicole and Jett Luka. Also, extended family members galore: grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins…


Multimedia storytelling with old (and new) photos, home movies, news clippings, written pieces, recordings, videos presented in an accessible web-based format, easy to navigate, explore, share and save.


As many stories as possible will be published here, to keep them fresh for family and friends, to keep them from fading, for mom. Developing this website will be my way of reconnecting family members and friends far and wide.


Such pesky questions. Right now (August 2022) this site is but a (metaphor alert) mere sapling with just a few barren branches and hardly any leaves. It is growing vigorously however, destined to become a (hyperbole alert) towering canopy of intertwined boughs and dense foliage.

How? (How to use site)

Site Organization

Each article (post) on this site focuses on a particular event or aspect of our family stories. Normally, on blogs, each article has its posting date set to the date the article was published on the blog. On this site, however, I have set the post date to the date when the event occurred, even if that is many decades in the past.

This stream of stories is ordered chronologically by date of event occurrence. Soon, the website menu bar will have links to different collections of these stories. For now, use the search box (on the right side of the menu bar at the top of every page, also in the footer, at the bottom of every page) to find stories of interest.
