Last week's email brought a welcome new issue of the Bassett Branches newsletter, AKA "Splinters from the Tree," from the Bassett Family Association. It's mentionable here because Jeffrey Bassett coordinates the group's work from Mundelein, a northern suburb of Chicago. The group combines DNA studies (he wrote up some early results in the Spring 2004 issue of New England Ancestors, available here but member$hip in NEHGS is required) with just keeping track of various lines of Bassetts in the old-fashioned way. We should all be so lucky as to have such an active surname organization.
