Hey all and greetings from the state of Illinois! I really hope this forum will help me understand my family's history. I look forward to reading the Burnett history and hope to offer some history of my own at some point!

Hello, Brian,
There have been, and probably are, a lot of Burnetts in Illinois. My 3rd Great Grandfather Absolom Burnett died in Denver, Illinois, having sprouted eleven branches by 3 different wives. Perhaps you fit in there somewhere. I am willing to share what I have learned...Brenda

I'm also a Burnett in IL (Chicago). My line was in Aberdeen (from Alexander Burnett and Janet Hamilton, the founders of the Crathes Castle), to Arbroath in 1700, then USA in 1860. I have records that take my Burnett line back to 1434.

Coincidentally, I work for Leo Burnett, a global ad agency. I'm still trying to find how I'm related to him.

I'd love to chat with any fellow Burnetters to share lines and stories from our family histories.
