I have been told through my grandmother, Olivia Hayes Brouillet Lanoue, that we are descendants of Rutherford B. Hayes.  Her mother ( my great grandmother) was named Samantha Hayes.  I would greatly appreciate any help:-). Thank you.

That's the Wikitree profile for President Hayes.  He had many sons so maybe you're related through one of them.  I would suggest to start by adding your parents and then finding records to tie one generation to the previous generation.  This link, https://familysearch.org/search/ is for a free site which can help you to find records.  Success!
Thank you:-)

Could I please be added as an administrator?

That's a link to the profile Vic created for her.  If you click on that link it will take you to the profile.  Once at the profile, select the SEND PRIVATE MESSAGE link (in the yellow box), ask Vic, and since Vic has offered, he can make you the PM (profile manager).  Good luck!

Debora, Welcome to WikiTree!

Vincent beat me to it.  It would be really helpful to have a starting point, so, to help, I added profile for your grandmother.  It is Hayes-6477.  Please send me private message and I will make you the Profile Manager.
