The "New" Burkett Family Web Site
Burkett Family Cousins
We hope you celebrated a joyful and meaningful Christmas. May you find the New Year to be happy and prosperous!
We have hit a milestone -- We have now identified over 15,000 descendants and spouses, about 1,300 more than reported in June, six months ago. Major updates and additions to the site are identified below.
Home Page Revised
The home page has been revised to simplify it. Links to family groups and links to other features have been removed and placed on new pages. Links to the latest features can now be found on the home page.
Family Group Updates
Nearly all of the eleven family groups have been updated or rebuilt since June with many manual updates added to bring the information more current. Several of the groups are scheduled to be rebuilt in the near future because of the number of manual updates that have been added.
Military Service Updates
More than fifty names have been added to this Military Service Page in the last month. Many names were identified in the process of preparing the new Find A Grave Index (A new feature -- see below). Check to see if your ancestors are now on the list.
New Features Added
Several new features have been added. Clicking on the links below will take you to these pages on the web site. They include the following:
Combined Surname Index
Find A Grave Index
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. The Links index shows the latest dates each section has been modified or revised. You are highly encouraged to visit the Family News page regularly as it is modified often and may contain information of particular interest.
We can always use your help. Your eyes and ears can help us keep our site up to date. It can be somewhat discouraging to find on the internet, obituaries of family members who have died in the neighborhood of family members who receive these updates and are familiar with the Burkett Family Web Site. Please, if you are aware of any significant event of other family members, let us know.
Family Reunions: So far we have the schedule for one Family Reunion in 2015. Planners of reunions for other branches of the Burkett Family should let us know the date and locationof their reunion soon so we can post the information on the site.
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.
