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.
