Welcome to the "New" Burkett Family Web Site    

This "New" web site is the first major revision to the Henry Burkett Family Web Site.  In 2003, Joe Burkett, III, developed and sponsored the original site and reserved the domain name "".  That domain name is still valid and has now been renewed by Joe Burkett for another 20 years (until 2036).  This site is for communicating with known descendants and those who might be searching for their ancestors and/or relatives.

This revision, launched in mid July, 2013, generally follows the original format provided by Joe Burkett.  It now has added features and provides a somewhat different format for showing the descendant families of Henry Burkett and Mary Epley Burkett.

Included here are the families of the eleven (11) children of Henry and Mary ‘Polly’ Epley Burkett and enough details about each individual to help researchers decide whether or not there may be a connection.  Email addresses are provided below for any queries, comments or suggestions.

 As of April 2018, over 19,400 descendant individuals, including spouses & adopted children, have been identified.  Additionally, the parents of many, many spouses are now identified.  More and more individuals are being discovered nearly every week.  Personal Ancestral File (PAF) [this program is no longer available] was used for recording data.  Copies of portions of this data can be made available on a cost basis for family members who wish a copy in a GEDCOM format.  This format will be substantially compatible with nearly all other genealogical software.

One of our objectives is to locate and record as much information and photos as possible about our extended family and distribute it to enough relatives so that the time, effort, and money spent by many, many people will not be lost.
