William Perry Hay's 1920-1945 Hay Family Genealogy

Original at the Library of Congress; no copies

This copy was made by photographing the entire book in June, 2007.

While this method was adequate for copying the photographs in the book, which are often the only copies of these photographs, this method was quite inadequate at reproducing the small handwritten notes, especially when the added notations were in pencil instead of pen. Since all of the relevant information was typed for inclusion elsewhere in this stand-alone website, and this photographic copy of the book is for back-up and documentation purposes only, it is not anticipated that a second trip will be undertaken to xerox or scan the book to replace these often-hard-to-decipher pages.

The book contains approximately 240 pages summarizing all of William Perry Hay's research on his father's (Oliver Perry Hay's) lineage. The book includes historical information on the Hay name, original photographs, drawings and newspaper clippings, as well as the family trees and stories written by William Perry Hay (1871-1947). (A couple of the pages were rearranged for this index for organizational purposes.)
