I have been researching the HACKETT FAMILY. This includes both the Paternal side of the family as well as the Maternal side.
I have been able to find information on the Paternal side of the family back to 1848. On the Maternal side I have found relatives back to 1812.
Besides the HACKETTS, I am also researching my side of the family--THE MCDERMOTTS which is the paternal side. My research here also includes the maternal side--DIETRICHS.
On the paternal side of the MCDERMOTTS I have been able to find information back to 1841; on the maternal side--to 1811.
I would welcome any help that either side of the family can give.
Perhaps you have pictures of those older relatives; or dates of birth, marriage, death, etc.
Let's try to put together a great history of our families.
