New on sackettfamily.info

The Sackett Family Association website sackettfamily.info has been updated with the following new and revised pages:
Many thanks to Association member Anne Murray who has supplied biographical sketches of her grandmother Florence Russell and great-grandmother Flora Sackett. Other members may be inspired to follow Anne's lead and add their contribution to the Sackett story by remembering one of their ancestors.

Thanks, too, to new member Darrin Lettinga who has provided a set of family photographs, published here as the Ashal Tyler Sackett gallery.

Glenn Sackett's DNA test results place him and his earliest known ancestor Warren J Sackett (c1794–1851) in the same line as Simon Sackett the colonist (the Thanet, Kent, line). The search is on to identify Warren's parents.

Thurmon King's database has grown to contain records of 37,154 people (29,823 online) and has an ever-growing amount of data on individuals, as well as more photographs supplied by members.

Pages from Vincent Eli John Sackett's bible were kindly supplied by new member Billie Dale Wakefield.
