Hays Kinship Association

My goal for the association is to connect, support, and collaborate with researchers targeting Hays, Hayes, Hay, etc to find common and unique lineages. I currently have 42 Hays (1806-2019) and 18 Hayes (1817-1886) surnames in my tree. (As of 26 June 2020). You may think someone changed their surname. But, these are in fact two different lines in my tree. In building a space to collaborate, I am developing Anchor Ancestor profiles to highlight the “Anchors” for my Hays and Hayes lines.

  • View my Hays and Hayes blog posts using the Kinship category.
  • Use the contact form to let me know who you are and the line(s) you are researching.

Daughter of Hays

“Hayska” also means daughter of Hays and represents my personal genealogical research. My primary research projects focus on:

  1. Henry Hays (1808-1888)
  2. Tracing Polish ancestors
