Our website team


Three of us keep this website going, but we have the assistance of many contributors to the site who keep us honest, add to the trees, and provide research and documents.  We could not get to where we are without so many Winder et al researchers helping us out!


Ann Winder is our webmaster and project originator


Ann Winder is a retired computer professional / data modeler who worked with accounts at GM, AT&T, Banco de Desarollo de Mexico, and many others. Her interest in genealogy began when she inherited notes from her beloved Nana about the family tree.  Retiring to a fifth wheel trailer allowed her to follow the family roots in person for some years. She now lives in Georgetown, Texas.



Deven Winders Lewis is our determined researcher

Deven Winders Lewis retired recently to Utah after a business management career in the West in the oil industry and publishing, then in law as a paralegal. Her passion for genealogy began in 1992 with the encouragement of a Winders first cousin who was on the hunt for their shared Winders 3rd great grandfather. The ancestor was found and, with the input of Ann Winder and John Winder’s father, a branch connection was made in 1994 to Thomas Winder (1680-1731), later supported by DNA testing. Deven enjoys working with researchers of any experience level to help find their “missing link” through research and DNA testing.
