Maltby of Redwood City, California, who we believe has presented his own research; the website contains thorough source information and appears to be an excellent resource for the Massachusetts Colony Washburn Family History. The website includes additional family lines as well. Regarding the Washburns, the only family line on the website reviewed by this researcher, much of the information presented appears to be in line with information already obtained and is believed to be accurate. For that reason, additional information obtained only from the Maltby Family Genealogy website has been included in this collection. Information provided, unless additional proof has been offered, has not yet been verified and cannot be guaranteed. Hereinafter cited as the Maltby Family Genealogy Website.
