With the support and encouragement from members of the society I have had good luck tracing all my lines back to Europe and beyond for my Hayes line.  Traveling is not my thing but we have ventured to North Dakota and Montana to search for and visit graves of my ancestors.   I look forward to working with members of SVGS and assisting the society to move forward with society goals.
