Publication in cultural affairs, and especially in its musical aspects, remains active. Ananias Davisson and Joseph Funk and their publication and work with shaped note music continues to hold research interest. The compiler's 1989 Rockingham County bibliography contained 148 citations.

Examples of interesting sources include Folk and Decorative Art of the Shenandoah Valley, Judy Liskey's My Sweet Valley Home: Rockingham County, Virginia Personal Correspondence from October 16, 1876 to [December 16, 1888], and an audiotape entitled Annual Singing of the Harmonia Sacra: Weavers Mennonite Church, 1996.
