Introduction: In 1999, the members of RootsWeb's Sackett mailing list initiated a project to update and correct the information found in Charles Weygant's 1907 book The Sacketts of America and to add information for the lines which "daughtered out." In 2003, The Sackett Family Association was formed to assist researchers as they "Research, Share and Preserve" their Sackett information. For many years, this compilation and update effort was ably led by TSFA historian and Sackett descendant Thurmon King. This database contains all the individuals named in Weygant's book with added information from the many researchers who have shared their research with TSFA as entered by Thurmon and a few assisting members.
In April 2015, TSFA representatives acquired and began testing of a new multi-user database that will enable users to more easily contribute photographs and historical data. Public users may access the information without registering. Potential contributors are asked to register. Access to data on living individuals is restricted and will be displayed in trees as "Living." Note that this database focuses mostly on American lines. English lines are documented in another database that is available on the TSFA website.
Contributors and visitors are encouraged to join The Sackett Family Association. Please visit our website at http://www.sackettfamily.info/.
Database Status: Most data on American lines are available. Photos are added, and geocoding is completed for most locations and is in the process of being verified. Note that to take full advantage of features in the new system, events and cemetery data need to be added in a new way, which will require considerable time. The new software also is facilitating standardization of place names, spotting typographical errors, etc.
Regarding locations, historic place names are found in the notes but usually have been converted to modern names for map display.
