The "New" Burkett Family Web Site
Christmas and Happy New Year
Burkett Family Cousins
This is to inform you about the latest updates to the Burkett Family Web Site. We have now identified nearly 12,200 descendants and spouses, about 1,000 more than that reported in early September, three months ago.
Henry Burkett, Sr. & Henry Isaac Burkett, Jr.
The suffixes Sr. and Jr. have been removed from the web site This was done to solve a problem that has been created by others. They had incorrectly presumed that if Henry Isaac was a Jr, then Henry, Sr. had to have been named Henry Isaac also. This is simply not the case. We are unaware that any record shows our Henry Burkett to have any middle name. The suffixes were added to early Burkett Family Newsletters and the early version of the web site in an attempt to clearly define that these were two separate people only and it was made clear that there was not a Jr.-Sr. relationship here.
Family Group Updates
Eight of the eleven family groups have been updated or rebuilt since September and ten of the eleven family groups have had manual updates added to bring the information current.
New Pages Added
Several new pages have been added. Clicking on the links below will take you to these pages on the web site. They include the following:
Who We Are
Who Am I?
Family Photo Albums
Pass Code Protection
Burkett Family Histories
Two additions have been added to this section of the web site. One is a more complete Burkett-Pyeatt Family History that was contributed by Mark Burkett Wilson and the other was Burkett History prepared by Lester Burkett and contribued by Frank and Elaine Zellner.
Nearly every other page on the web site has been updated with some new information as well. You will need to check out these pages to see what the additions have been.
At the moment we have no information on any reunions scheduled for 2014. If you are planning one.or are aware of one that serves members of our extended Burkett Family, please let us know. Even if is in the planning stages or if it has already been planned and scheduled, please let us know. We will help you advertise it. We also hope you will give us a small report with photos after the event.
Please check your families' listings to make sure they are correct. Tell us about new births, marriages and other accomplishments. If you can help fill in some of the blanks it would be greatly appreciated
Please tell your Burkett descendant relatives (children, brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews and etc.) about our site. They may want to help keep the site up to date.
