This book, Joseph Vick of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight County, Virginia is a beautiful 562 page leather bound document about the first five Vick generations in the North America continent. It was, at the time meticulously researched, edited and indexed by John Beatty and Di Ann Vick back in 2003. We all know how much the internet has opened up the world of accessing documents, files and books that was almost impossible 20 years ago. Then there is the advancement that DNA has played in documenting genealogy, Wow!
But all good things must come to an end and this "old Volume I" is being replaced by a new two volume set that is now in print. There were many corrections & omissions resolved over the last 20 years in this new book. The progress on finding Joseph1's parents is still evolving, yet James Larry Vick & his group are working the DNA trail. While Larry is an expert in DNA genealogy, it is only a matter of time before we find a connection to Joseph1's ancestors.
It has been a generation since this book Joseph Vick of Lower Parish Isle of Wight County, Virginia, was published. It is 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. This new book was printed by Walsworth Inc, yes in the good old USA.
