The "New" Burkett Family Web Site
Burkett Family Cousins
We hope all of you are finding the year 2016 fruitful and prosperous!
We have now identified over 16,300 descendants and spouses, about 700 more than reported last May.
A report on the email verification test run to check the email addresses of Burkett family members receiving notices about the web site. Messages were sent to 139 addresses throughout the US plus Australia, Ireland and Switzerland. 9 addresses were determined to be no longer valid. 77 persons replied and confirmed their addresses. Altogether the replies accounted for 62% of the addresses checked. Not to bad - but one wonders about the 38% for whom we received no response. If you did not verify your address earlier, please do so now by simply hitting the "reply" and "send" button on your email system
One New Feature Added in June
One new features added since our last message in May, It was added in June so in a way it is not really new. That feature is entitles "The Henry Burkett Family of Tennessee". This is a collection of photos compiled by Oliver Webb. This feature mimics the FlipAlbum® CD prepared by Oliver some time ago. Many photos are available here.
Much of last year was spent collecting additional information on the family. One source was found that allowed us determine and add thousands of bits of information to our site. This information included spouses surnames, spouses parent's names including spouses mother's maiden name. The names of towns where individuals were born were found along with much, much more.
Family Group Records
Nearly every other page on the web site continues to be updated with some new information. 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 also 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. Please, if you are aware of any significant event regarding other family members, let us know.
We have typically have two Family Reunions scheduled for each summer; the Burkett Family Reunion in Alabama in June and the Murray Family Reunion in Texas in July. This is the information about these reunions that we know about at this time.
Planners of reunions for other branches of the Burkett Family should let us know the dates and locations of their reunion soon so we can post the information on this site.
Please share information about our site with
your Burkett descendant relatives (children, brothers, sisters,
cousins, nieces, nephews and etc.). They may want to visit the site
