Product Details

The Vick Genealogy: The Study of a Southern American Family in White and Black, by John Beatty, CG®, will be published in a two-volume set.  It totals over 1,000 pages and includes photographs.  The limited first edition will be hardcover with dust jackets in a slipcovered box.  This book will be the highest heirloom quality available. Many generations of Vicks beyond today will be able to read and enjoy this book.

It has been a generation since the book Joseph Vick of Lower Parish Isle of Wight County, Virginia, authored by John Beatty and Di Ann Vick, was published by James Davis of Genus Publishing.  It was a fascinating book that documented the first five generations of Vicks in America.  Technology in DNA and digital genealogy records has advanced greatly since the book was printed.  This has enabled John Beatty to write a much more complete and thorough history of our first five generations, as well as a new book that extends our genealogy to the sixth and seventh generation.  In addition, John has added, where possible, the history of Blacks associated with the Vick family either through marriage, children, or slavery.  We believe this is one of the first genealogies of an ante-bellum southern family to include this expanded family of white and black members. This book was made possible due to John Beatty’s tireless research into our family.  Meanwhile, Larry Vick, using DNA technology, has been clarifying uncertainty in the unproven family lines where historical documents do not exist.  John is a certified professional genealogist (CG) while Larry is an expert in DNA genealogy.
