Among Cousins
This is the periodic newsletter written by BHF Historian, Charles L Bland. The volumes serve as supplemental material (changes and updates) to his 1982 book, "A Vision of Unity - The Bland Family in England and America". 
Latest! Volume 27-28 focuses on three major topics:  The organization of our numerous family groups under the new Henry System, brought about by Terese Bueker; The Maiden Name of the wife of James Bland (1661-1709), founder of Group Two under our new system and further details about his place or origin in St. Andrews Parish, Penrith, Cumberland County England and finally an exhaustive update of the James River Bland Family, our Group 1 in honor of the fact that the James River Family was the first to settle in the North American Colonies. This update of the James River Family was made possible by the indispensable collaboration of Barbara Bland, who was responsible for about 90 percent of the work for that section. ($23)

A Vision of Unity: The Bland Family in England and America: 1555-1900. Available in soft-cover ($74.95) and hard-cover($84.95).

“The Undeserved Misfortunes of Our Unhappie Familie” a more historical and entertaining treatment of the settlement of the James River Bland Family in Virginia, up to the hanging of Giles Bland (1647-1677) in the aftermath of Bacon’s Rebellion. ($15)
