This part of the website has been added to include the information so far gathered on the early migrators of the names HALSTED, HALSTEAD, HOLSTEAD, ALSTEAD, OLSTEAD and their variants to the United States. If you are interested in researching any of these names, or finding out more about the HALSTEAD and variant families use the links to access the information.

The research represents the work of many researchers and in return I encourage other researchers to include their information. The information in this website covers detailed narratives for many of these HALSTED and variant families. These narratives can be easily searched by Surname, or Master Index, or by searching the website. The narratives section will be generated and updated from the master database on a regular basis.

The site is maintained as part of The Halsted Trust, a registered educational charity in the UK, set up to continue the research into the HALSTE(A)D name and its variants. Details of the Trust can be found on its own website

I hope that you find something of interest but in any event please contact me so that we can continue the work.
