The mission of SCGS is to preserve and provide access to documents containing genealogical and historical information. You can help us accomplish this by contributing information and documents from your own collection. The documents that we receive will be maintained in the Southwest Virginia Heritage Room at the Smyth-Bland Regional Library. Digital copies, transcriptions, and abstracts will be maintained in our database and where appropriate, made available on our website. If you have any questions about contributions, let us know by sending a message to
