The two books every Birdsong should own (I bought both books for my children as well!):
The two books are available that trace 7 generations of Birdsong families from 1700 Colonial Virginia into the early 1900's. They are a compilation of reasearch that represents what many early Birdsong researchers have done over the past 35 years.
The first book,THE FIRST FIVE GENERATIONS OF BIRDSONGS IN AMERICA is about 400 pages of work starting with our common Birdsong ancestors, John and Elizabeth Birdsong in a 1700 Charles Parish, now York Co., VA. This book traces the Birdsong families migrating from VA into the Carolinas, TN, KY, GA, MS, and Alabama.
The second book titled the SIXTH GENERATION BIRDSONG FAMILIES is a continuation of the first book which documents the continuing migration of the families into MO, AR, Texas and beyond.
Depending on your line from John and Elizabeth,these two books trace the lines
into the early 1900s. If you know your grandfather or your great grandfather,
with these books you should be able to follow your Birdsong Ancestry back to
Five Generations of American Birdsong Ancestry by Dean John Birdsong,
387pgs.; In short, this book has all the Birdsong Genealogy and documentation

BRYN FFYLIAID PUBLICATIONS is a small publishing house whose major emphasis is documentation of family history in some of the early counties of Virginia. Several hardcover books of family history are included in the collection, as well as paperbound abstracts of census data, wills, deeds, guardian accounts, marriage licenses, orders, and land taxes. The court records of Lunenburg County are the basis for the majority of the approximately 100 publications, but there are some records from other Virginia counties - e.g., New Kent, Hanover, James City, Surry, Sussex, York, Warwick.
All of the books are abstracted, compiled, and fully indexed by JUNE BANKS EVANS, recipient in 1995 of the Virginia Records Award of the Virginia Genealogical Society for her meticulous preparation of abstracts from microfilmed copies of the original records. A VGS reviewer referred to Mrs. Evans as the "premier researcher of Lunenburg County" and "a formidable presence within the genealogical community" for making records readily available to researchers.
