What to do about a family loan and getting repaid?

Question Details: I have been living with my family for several years and have been paying rent since I turned 18. However, I have also been allowing my family to "borrow" money. Over the course of 3 years the amount "borrowed" has accumulated to slightly over $20,000. I fear that they have no intentions of paying it back to me and have been recently kicked me out of the house due to my refusing to pay them more money via borrowing. I have been keeping notes of the amount borrowed, the date and the reason behind why they wanted to borrow or a significant event that happened to help them remember the day. I did not get a signature from them. Can I take them to court for this?
