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 "http://www.burkettfamily.org/" for an initial period 10 years. That domain name is still valid and will be until 2016 unless we extend it further. 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, follows the original format provided by Joe Burkett. It now has added features and provides a 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.
This site now (Nov 2014) has over 15,000 descendant individuals, including spouses, whereas the original site (2003) had just over 4,000. Additionally, the parents of many, many spouses are now identified. More individuals are being discovered nearly every week. Personal Ancestral File (PAF) was used for recording data. Copies 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 people will not be lost.

The counters have been removed!
We were never quite sure just what the original counter represented and kept it for a while just for fun. Statistics from our hosting company show that for the twelve months ending July 31, 2014, we have averaged around 146 unique visitors to the site each day; many for less than a minute and others for more extended periods of up to an hour or more.
Unfortunately, as of September 7, 2014, our Flag
Counter is no longer available. We enjoyed having it here for about a year
and was following it closely to see where some of our visitors were coming from.
We will miss it.
