[Update: June 2023] I recently heard a roomer that I had passed away. I may have retired from Genealogy, but I am definately not dead. I currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A. Drop me a line sometimes. I would enjoy hearing from visitors to my site.

[Update: April 2022] I have decided to come out of genealogy retirement long enough to add the 1950 U.S. census data to this website. This census became available on April 1, 2022, and can be searched for free by the general public. It is located at https://1950census.archives.gov. Adding this census data is the only change I have made to this website. Please don't ask that I make any other changes or additions.

After 22 years online this site was scheduled to close down on July 4, 2018. Thanks to 14 generous donors we had raised enough funds to keep the site operating until April 4, 2021. This website will now shut down in April 2021 unless there are additional donations to keep it up past that date.

Here it is almost 2019 so I have a little gift for visitors to my site. I've uploaded some videos from a 1992 Multi-Family Reunion in Conway, Arkansas. If you're interested in seeing them click on  reunion video.

This web site is provided as a central resource for people researching the Whisnant surname, and all its variations. After 28 years of researching our family history I have retired and am not accepting any additional genealogical data. The site is now in it's final form. I wish you and your family all the best. August 2015 -- Raymond C. Whisnant

This research includes, but is not limited to, the following variations in spelling: Whisnant, Whisenant, Whisenand, Whisonant, Whisante, Whisenhunt, Visinand, etc.
