The Library

It's not that the Irish are cynical.
It's simply that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody.

- Brenda Behan

  • The Genealogy Reports are the printouts of the first six generations of our large Winters and Wayt Family database, in Standard Register format.  They include a listing of Master Sources as well as a lengthy citations section.  Please allow sufficient time for download.

  • The Records Archive is a special section created for serious researchers, but all are welcome to browse!  It features images of records, such as marriage certificates, deeds, birth certificates, military papers, death certificates, etc.

  • We have moved the Grave Markers galleries to their own page for easier navigation.

  • Don't forget to browse our Surnames and Pedigrees pages!  These are important stores of information linking our families to those of others.  There has been a significant amount of information contributed to this website from our 'distant cuzzins.'

  • The Documents & Articles section features a wide variety of miscellaneous materials for your enjoyment.  We welcome contributions to this collection.

  • We are quite pleased to be the exclusive online source of Margaret Wayt DeBolt's fabulous West Virginia Hillbilly Archive.  If you don't spend some time here, you are really missing out on some priceless stories and family information!
