The collections of the University Libraries of Virginia Tech include many local history and genealogical

resources. These are not shelved in one place, but are located according to subject or format in various

departments in the library. Many of the patrons working in these subjects are unfamiliar with this library

and need help in locating the materials. This guide is intended to provide that help.

The titles listed are those which librarians have found to be most useful to these patrons. Specific titles

for Montgomery County are listed if available. Southwest Virginia, Virginia, or general materials which

include the more specific area are also included.

County records are most useful because the county is the political unit which records most personal

information on its inhabitants. County records may include wills, deeds to land, court actions, births,

deaths, etc. Some original county records have been lost through fire or other disasters, others have been

copied and published in articles or book form. Montgomery County records to 1900 are available on

microfilm. The original large counties of Virginia were broken down into smaller counties as the state

was settled. Therefore, it is important to know the name of the county in which location was included at a

particular time. County histories often include selections from county records as well as narrative

accounts.

The Library of Virginia houses state records and has published guides to these. The guides and some

state records in published form are listed here.

Military and census records are among the national records most useful for genealogy and local history

research. Some of these are available in print or on microfilm in this library.

Please turn to the table of contents in order to understand the organization of this list. In the text, under

each heading, you will find titles, with call numbers, for materials in that category. The last part of the

call number may indicate a special location other than the regular Newman Library stacks (i.e. Ref Rm or

SPEC).

For help in locating the titles listed, or for additional suggestions, please consult the librarians at the

reference desk and in the Special Collections Department.
