I've been able to track my ancestry through family records to John Wyant b: abt 1836 in Armstrong Pennsylvania.  From there I signed up for the membership to where someone in the "oneworldfamily" section posted the following information.
John Wyant's father was Johan Henrich Wigandt b: 27 Jan 1749 Germany d: Pennsylvania 1822
Johan Henrich Wigandt's father was Joh (I assumed short for Johan) Peter Wigand b: 8 Mar 1700 Germany d: 14 Feb 1758.
Joh Peter Wigand's father was Johann Jost (I've also seen Yost) Wiegand (I've also seen Wigant) b:1671 Freinsheim, Germany d:1758 Germany
Johann Jost Wiegand's father was Heinrich Wiegand the only information that I was able to find on Heinrich Wiegand was that he was married to Anna Dorothea Stroh and that he was born in 1648.  I tried to locate any actual documents to verify any information given.  I've found that ANY help in any search can do you some good.  I hope that I was able to help at least one person. Of all the spelling variations of the Wyant name, it seems to me that my German ancestors wanted to assimilate into Amercia by taking a more "English" sounding name.  Not to mention the literacy rate of the "record keepers" back then.  Good luck hunting.

The Wyant Project now has a certain descendant of the Freinsheim Weigandts whose results will be posted in a few weeks. I hope you'll arrange your own testing. This is a great opportunity for you to verify your lineage.

I'm sorry to be so slow answering this - I just don't think to look here very often.
Would you like me to post your pedigree on the Wyant Project site?
Are you interested in joining the project by dna testing?
If you look at our Patriarch page you will see that we have a number of unrelated Wyant groups. You may find that you fit into one of them or you may be starting a new line.
