Mailing list

The Sackett family mailing list at Sackett.groups.io is the main forum for the exchange of research findings and the posting of queries about Sackett family history and genealogy.

The list was moved from RootsWeb to Groups.io in January 2020 following RootsWeb's announcement of the closure of their lists.

The Sackett list archives from 1997 to 2020 remain available for research at RootsWeb Sackett archive.
