I'm new to the list. My grandfather, Royal W. Ryan, was Executive Vice
> President of the New York Convention Bureau in the 1950's and 60's, and
> was instrumental in the promotion of the 1964-65 World's Fair in NYC.
> His family had its roots in WV and VA. The most distant Ryan ancestor of
> my lineage is a William Ryan who reportedly came to Buckingham Co, VA
> from England in abt 1770. His grandson, William W. Ryan, later migrated
> to Fayette Co, WV in abt 1830. Many Ryans of this lineage still live in
> WV today.
> If there is anyone who knows about or is related to this Ryan family, I
> would be most happy to correspond. I'm interested in any details that can
> be unearthed about this family.
