Welcome to my genealogy web site. Please consider this site permanently under construction. Much of the information found here has been gathered from collections made by my mother, Caroline M. Wurts, and my father's parents, John Sparhawk Wurts and Dorothy Barrett (Williams) Wurts, concerning our lineages. I have finally posted my Ancestors of Reed Molthan Williams Wurts database!!! So far I have only entered into my ANCESTORS database parents for each family and will enter the other children as time goes by. Eventually, I will collect collateral lines of sibling descent for future inclusion and request that viewers with lines that connect share information for future posting. Also, if you find any errors/discrepancies, please let me know what information you have on those instances. I have collected this information from various sources, but have not verified the data with primary sources. I have included some of the source references in the notes for some of the individuals. Some of the medieval lineages are known to have conflicting sources, and a few of the modern lineages have even been found to be in need of corrections. Information source documentation is very valuable in all lineage research and I encourage viewers to volunteer sources for information they find listed here. I hope you will find some previously undiscovered ancestors here!

Geographical Index

Surnames of my ancestors are listed here if there is a record, or other information, that indicates their presence in the area at some time. These initial listings include names mostly from country/state focus lists of individuals that have been entered in the computer database so far.

I have temporarily linked some of the names to my Heraldry pages, but am in the process of linking them to my Ancestors database, now that it's finally posted! Some of the names are followed by a "(+)" link which indicates that there is a separate page with additional family information such as other children, biographical info, sources, and a few links, and some include heraldry. If there is such a "(+)" page, it usually contains more info on a particular family than the database entry.

Many of the names on my father's mother's side are linked to my Williams Descendants and Associated families database which lists other children of the families.
