The Ayers Family Homepage

Ruth and Newell Ayers - December 1992

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the Ayers Family Homepage. Development of this homepage has just begun so you may want to make a point of stopping by often to see what's been added. Be sure to bookmark the page or add it to your favorites.

I hope to eventually store here an online photograph album of the Ayers family. While this will primarily feature Newell and Ruth Ayers and their descendants, I hope to also include photos of their ancestors on both sides, such as the Baughns, Weiskopfs, Stephensons, etc.

I hope to also include documents (either transcribed or scanned) that details the family's known history.

Should you have in your possession any family photographs, documents, or information that may be of interest and relevance, please send me an email.


Sincerely yours,

Kenneth Ayers
