It's a genealogy lover's dream come true. We're locking you into the Library to research your relatives for four uninterrupted hours. Smyrna Library has 5,000 print volumes in its genealogy collections, with a special emphasis on Virginia and the South. The collection also includes Census and cemetery records on microfiche, as well as access to the following databases:, MyHeritage Library Edition, American Ancestors, and HeritageQuest.

Professional genealogists, Dianne Barfield and Karen Molohon will be on hand to answer questions and guide you to other resources when you hit a dead end.

A light supper of deli sandwiches, chips, fruit, brownies and soft drinks will be served in the downstairs Meeting Room. If you can tear yourself away from the stacks, you can fortify yourself with delicious snacks.

"Sitting Up With the Dead" is sponsored by the Friends of Smyrna Library.
