Blankenbaker is a collection of essays by a range of contemporary scholars with a strong interest in Germanna. Each essay draws on the years of scholarship in Germanna-related topics on the part of each of the contributors to the volume, as their way of honoring John Blankenbaker for his many years of research, publication, and speaking on Germanna topics.

The contents include: Transcriptions and translations of the emigration permissions of four of the 1714 immigrant families, Holtzclaw, Fishback-Rector, and Cuntz- a study of early Germanna area roads and the settlers participation in their construction- an overview essay of the emigration of German-speakers through London to British North American colonies from Nova Scotia to Georgia from 1680-1750, as a broad context for the Germanna groups- an updated and expanded genealogy of the descendants of Michael Big Mike Clore- an architectural history and analysis of Hebron Lutheran Church, with special emphasis on the German timber-framing techniques employed- a study of Christopher Zimmerman and his familys tavern in the village of Stevensburg, Virginia- a mapping essay of the Germanna family landholdings in the Little Fork community of Culpeper County, with an 11 x 17 fold-out map included- and a study of the Germanna area in the difficult, destructive Civil War years with a survey of surviving buildings and earthworks, including those on Germanna Foundation property.

Many of the essays are illustrated with documents, maps, period photographs, and contemporary photographs. All essays are carefully documented, and the 300-page volume is indexed. The editor, Katharine L. Brown, and the Germanna president, J. Marc Wheat, both provide brief introductory essays.
