This website provides information on the names HALSTED, HALSTEAD, HOLSTEAD, ALSTEAD, OLSTEAD and their variant together with their families. If you are interested in researching any of these names, or finding out more about and ot the HALSTEAD and variant families use the links to access the substantial amount of worldwide 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 included. These narratives can be easily searched by Surname using the 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 charity and its educational remit. 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

A new page has been added which gives access to a separate database (at present) following the line from the three HALSTED brothers who left for the United States in the 1630's

A new page has also been added which has details of the Halstead DNA project

There is a link in the menu on the left to the that blog we maintain relating to the Halstead research

This will be the last update for the website in this format and in a couple of months a new website will be created in a slightly different format. The reason for this and a few other things will be covered in a blog post shortly.

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