Gordon Adams was born and raised in Virginia and because of his career in the United States Air Force has lived in most of the states in the USA as well as “one year in Labrador and seven years in Europe.” Gordon says he “started [researching] on my family about 1935, and have hundreds of ancestral surnames, primarily English, Dutch, French, and Belgian.” Chris Sackett shares that Gordon is “unusual amongst American Sacketts in that he does not descend from either Simon the colonist or John of New Haven, but comes from a later arrival—his great-great-grandfather Henry Sackett who emigrated from Thanet, Kent, to New York City in about 1836.” The reason he began researching his family history is because “my family had many, many snapshots. I felt a need to understand if and how I was related to all of these people; primarily an identification problem at first; is this guy husband of my first cousin standing with him? Which of my seven uncles was her father?”
