Dear Brian, Gotta start with most current information in order to work backwards. Now that the 1940 Census is out you have a good chance to do so. Names change and spellings drive most of us bonkers.

Your post caught my attention because I'm chasing folklore to prove or disprove. My Lewis', a James M. could've married a Catherine Berkett or Birkett. He was Kentucky born and she from Tennessee (maybe Bedford?). Around 1826 married and lived in Crawford County, Arkansas. Lots of questions still on my part whether it could've been another maiden name.

Make about ten copies of the PDF forms available for family group sheets and start with your family, your parents and your siblings, and work back to your father's and mother's siblings, etc. This will save you time in the long run. Love to hear what you learn about your Burkett line.

Good Hunting, Beth
