The Burkes were originally Anglo-Irish. There were several Burk families which immigrated to America in the middle 1600s and early 1700s and settled in Virginia. Among those Burks was Sam Burk who settled in Byrd Creek and James Burk who settled along the New River and later in Surry County, North Carolina. Two other Burks were Thomas Burk who settled in Shenandoah and John Burk who settled near Thomas. Descendants live in Virginia and other parts of the United States.

About this record

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
