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 ""  for an original 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 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 (Sep 2014) has over 14,400 descendant individuals, including spouses, whereas the original site (2003) had just over 4,000.  Additionally, the parents of many spouses are now identified.  More individuals are being discovered nearly every week.  Personal Ancestral File (PAF) was used for recording data and 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.

Remember, this information was not collected and produced by any one individual.  Many, many people have contributed time and energy gathering the information presented on these pages.  Each of us has contributed in some way or another.  The family trees presented in this website were built from several individual trees created by some descendants of a particular branch.  It was also derived from books of one form or another that were created by various different people.  Much credit must be given to those, both living and past, who spent countless hours, days and years collecting and preparing the information that we are able to present in this website.

The counters have been removed!

e 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; most 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.
