The Book of Sacketts
The Sackett Family History and Genealogy
This is the first edition of a new e-book. It has entries for the earliest known 664 Sacketts, covering at least 13 generations from the late 1200s to the mid-1700s. It includes Simon the colonist's generation and continues for four more generations down to his 2nd great-grandchildren.
Future editions will include later generations, with the eventual aim of publishing data on all members of the Sackett family, subject to a cutoff of about 100 years to respect the privacy of living persons.
The focus of the book is strictly on the Sackett name, with full entries made only for those who were born Sacketts. Children of female Sacketts are listed, where known, under their mother's genealogical sketch, but their lines are not continued.
This is the first attempt to document the Sackett family in book form since Charles Weygant published The Sacketts of America in 1907. It is also the first publication in book form of the genealogy of the English Sacketts. Entries are fully sourced, including references to the full text of Weygant's entries for persons who appear there.
The book includes A Selective History, with information on the Sackett name, migration and distribution, research, demographics, and some famous, infamous, or otherwise interesting Sacketts.
The book may be downloaded in EPUB format for most reading programs and devices, for example Calibre, Bluefire, iBooks, and newer Kindle readers (including Kindle for Windows 10), or in MOBI format for older Kindle readers. There is also a PDF version if a paginated rather than reflowable text is preferred.
