William Henry Waits Project

William Henry Waits William Henry Waits

Have you seen this man?  This is my great great grandfather William Henry WAITS and I am looking for additional photos of him for a family project that I’m working on.  If you’ve been reading along and thinking that maybe you think that I’d like to see some of the photos that you have of this family, you’re right!  Now’s your chance!  Scan them and send them in! 

I’ve set up a special email account for photo submissions: GeneaKathyPhotos@gmail.com

  • If possible, try to scan the photos with a resolution of at least 300 ppi.  The bigger, the better.  My email can handle it.
  • If you inherited photos of William or anyone else related to his family and want to give them to another family member, I would gladly take them.  I am archiving all of my photos and would be thrilled to add yours to my collection so I can protect them as well as share them with other family members.

Here’s the nitty gritty to help you find him in your photos!
