Welcome to the new Wayt-Winters family website!


For those of you familiar with the old website, I've had to change the site for two reasons.  First, the previous website contained far too much available information - data that was easily 'borrowed' by others to use for their family trees.  At first, I didn't mind this, but when I discovered that the material was being used improperly, then I decided to make a change.

Second, technology has come a long way since I first launched the original website in 2006.  Instead of attempting to duplicate my database on the web - a costly and time-consuming endeavor, I've decided to leverage Ancestry's online system as well as the now well-established Find-a-Grave website to use as storage of our family data.

Instead of being a one-stop-shop for information, this website is designed to point you in the right direction.  Check the Surname List at the link above which will take you to Find-a-Grave entries for many individuals.  Next, go to the Contact Me page and send me a request for information.  If you are a serious researcher or just an interested family member, I will extend an invitation to my private tree on Ancestry.

Don't miss the blog section of the site.  There are stories, biographies, and the complete set of Margaret Wayt DeBolt's "The Wayts of Hillsboro," once featured in The West Virginia Hillbilly.
