Virginia Genealogy

my home, Heaven Scent Bed and Breakfast, Deltaville, VA

Come stay at my B&B and do local research! Heaven Scent B&B is in Middlesex county, VA, about an hour east of Richmond. Within reach, you have courthouses on the Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula and Virginia's Peninsula: Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, as well as Richmond's Library of Virgnia!.

Why not make this your base for a week of digging? Book online or call me at 804 832 6200. Of course I offer a wired highspeed network and WiFi, so evenings you can enter your new records and prepare for the next day's research. My library is also available to you. Newbies gladly helped. Hardened genealogy addicts welcome. I look forward to meeting you!

Typically open April-November, but in this year of pandemic, may not open. Look for me as of April 2021.

Books for sale

Preparing to move, I have to drastically pare my library. Help support this site by buying directly from me. I have an extensive collection of US and European history, with a heavy emphasis on the UK. This section has been removed until I can ship again - possibly in the fall.
