Since 1997 I have been privately publishing, on a very small scale, a Winton book. THE DESCENDANTS OF JOHN WINTON in its 5th edition included about 780 descendants of John Winton (1685-1761) of Fairfield, Connecticut. It includes over 300 descendants of his grandson Nathan Winton, the Revolutionary War soldier who moved to Crawford County, Pennsylvania.
I am currently distributing the book on CD, not hard copy. It is only for cousins, so you must submit your line of descendancy. If you don't wish to have your living people in the book, you still must submit it to me as evidence that you (or a spouse) are a cousin.
For people who want the CD, submit their line, BUT don't wish living individuals to appear, the cost is $30. For people who consent to have their living people in the book, the cost is $15.
The purpose is not to sell CDs, but rather to create a book which includes living individuals who want to share their lines of descent.
You are welcome to submit color Xeroxes of your Winton-line ancestors; any picture that has at least one person in it, born before 1901, is admissible. (The 1901 date is only to limit the number of photos. Also, color Xeroxes of old B&W photos scan very well by computer. Black & white xeroxes are not acceptable. Scans may be emailed instead.)
Most people who have contributed their line to the book have included living descendants. This is meant to be a personal family book, primarily distributed to cousins. In fact, I will not "sell" this CD to anyone unless they prove to my satisfaction that they are a cousin.
I don't release gedcoms of my database, only the finished book, but I'm quite willing to look up several individuals at a time for anyone who is looking for a connection to this family.
