Welcome to the Ayers & Billingsley Family Tree!
About  Ayers and Billingsley Families
During the time when "The Suitcase Letters" was being put together, Sandy and I soon realized that  many of the names of relatives mentioned in the letters and stories that Grandma Faye  wrote, would not be familiar to the younger generations of our families.  We contemplated adding a  "code" so relatives reading "The Suitcase Letters" would be able to understand who was being  referenced in those letters and stories.

One thing led to another and I started this Family Tree for the Ayers/Karstens and  Billingsley/McCleary families which represents the families of Russell Vernon Ayers and Faye  Billingsley Ayers Taenzer.

Photos are included on the site, and if you wish to not have any photos or have additional photos   put on the website, please email me at jo_sawitz@yahoo.com with the attached information or  photos, and I will make sure those photos and information are added or removed as per your  request.  It should be noted that when visitors to the site view the Family Tree, only those who  have permission to view the complete site will be able to view ALL the photos and information of  our ancestors and descendants.  Visitors checking out the website will only be able to view  limited information of deceased relatives.

If, while perusing the site, you find incorrect information or information that should be added to  your particular family, please let me know and I will make those changes and/or corrections.

It should be noted that the Ayers and Billingsley families both have roots that trace back to  William the Conqueror.  A * next to the name of a family member indicates that person (both male and  female) is our direct descendant to our geneaological lines which include Ayers, Karstens,  Billingsley and McCleary. 
 Some of the stories included are those written by Grandma Faye. I have also included  information regarding both sides of the family.  It is fascinating to understand where we  came from and how we got here.
