for the descendants of

Zebulon HESTON and Dorothy HUTCHINSON

____________________

OUR FOUNDATION ON THIS HOMEPAGE

The HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION will be for the descendants of Zebulon HESTON and Dorothy HUTCHINSON. Zebulon Heston arrived in Eastham, Barnstable Co, MA from England in 1684. By using this website for Family Newsletters and Family Reunions, we will rekindle the bonds of our HESTON Family which began when our ancestors Zebulon and Dorothy got married on 3 DEC 1698 in Hutchinson Manor, Burlington County, New Jersey.

Letter to my HESTON Family descendants

To my HESTON Family cousins,

On JUL 7, 2017 we celebrated the 15th Anniversary of the HESTON Family Website where I first began setting it up at my sister's home here in San Antonio, Texas on her computer at Rootsweb.com which has a collection of websites under different surnames.

Changes are coming with my genealogy site for the HESTON Family. I have not yet been able to figure out how to use the new system at FileZilla to replace Ancestry for making changes and continue to build my website.

So I have copy - pasted the instructions from Rootsweb at Ancestry, until I figure out how to use the new system:

"We will be discontinuing this RootsWeb Online Editor on July 31st, 2017. RootsWeb FreePages users will need to use an FTP client to upload and modify files starting August 1st, 2017.

Many of our users have been happy with FileZilla which is a free FTP client. Useful tips and tricks for FileZilla and Rootsweb are available.

Other free FTP clients are also available."

FileZillaŽ, the free FTP solution

If you know how to use FreeZila, then let me know. Thank you..... till later.

your HESTON cousin,

Martin J. Bellard

BEFORE OUR WEBSITE

I am Martin J. BELLARD, a HESTON Family descendant. My four-great-grandparents are John BALLARD (or BELLARD) and Sarah HESTON, the great-granddaughter of Zebulon HESTON and Dorothy HUTCHINSON. I began my Genealogy Research in AUG 1970 when I was a young teenager. I first found out, in DEC 1998, about my HESTON Family ancestors. And I found out, in DEC 2000, about our cousin John P. HESTON, the Editor and Publisher of the HESTON HISTORIAN newsletters and directories written from 1957 to 1961, as well as the three Annual National HESTON Family Reunions which he had organized - 1959 in Pennsylvania, 1960 in Iowa, and 1961 in California.

I became so inspired by the work of John P. HESTON, that I decided to become actively involved with the HESTON Family with Newsletters and Reunions. The first thing that I did was to research thru several of the past years of EVERTON'S GENEALOGICAL HELPER Magazine which annually lists Family Associations, Family Newsletters, and Family Reunions. To my dismay, I discovered nothing listed for the HESTON Family.

So, on JAN 7, 2001 Sunday evening, I established the HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION with plans for future Newsletters and Reunions. This is all from the inspiration by the work of John P. HESTON (1911 - 1970), of Allen Park, Michigan. This began with a listing which I placed in the Everton's Genealogical Helper in their MAR/APR 2001 issue. I placed another listing for the HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION in the EVERTON'S FAMILY HISTORY (Magazine's new name) in their MAR/APR 2002 issue.
