      Two important books abt George Washington's ancestry are online.
      See:
      http://genlibrarian.blogspot.com/2007/10/books-of-day-george-washingtons.html

      They were written by two of the nation's preeminent genealogists:
      Joseph Lemuel Chester (1821-1882) and Henry FitzGilbert Waters
      (1833-1913).

      The first is an essay by Joseph Lemuel Chester that examines the
      ancestry of Washington and includes quotes from Washington's
      correspondence on his family's traditions about their origins. Chester
      was inducted into the NGS Hall of Fame in 1995.

      Chester, Joseph Lemuel. A preliminary investigation of the alleged
      ancestry of George Washington : first President of the United States
      of America, exposing a serious error in the existing pedigree. Boston,
      MA: H.W. Dutton & Son, printers, 1866. 14p.

      The next book is a sequel to Chester's work that expanded this
      discussion of Washington's ancestry. It was written by Henry
      FitzGilbert Waters (1833-1913). Like Chester, Waters was also elected
      into the NGS Hall of Fame.

      Waters, Henry FitzGilbert. An examination of the English ancestry of
      George Washington, setting forth the evidence to connect him with the
      Washingtons of Sulgrave and Brington. Boston, MA: NEHGS, 1889. 55p.
