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.



We have now identified over 17,100 descendants and spouses, about  800 more than reported in January.    

One New Feature Added This Month

One new features added since our last message in January,  That feature is entitled "Consolidated Name Index".  This is an index of all named individuals listed in the Burkett Family Website.  Individuals are listed by surname then given name.

Additional Information:  

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

Each and every single family group record has was rebuilt as of Jan 2, 2016.  Many additions have been added to these records and some are overdue to be rebuilt, specifically the descendants of John Burkett and Paulina Markum.  A visit to the Surname List for this family will show the surnames that have been added since January.

Other updates

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.

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 and help keep the site up to date.
