Attention!! Information for all our members and visitors to our genealogy room at the college – Our genealogy room has been moved – it still is on the same floor (2nd floor above the SCC Library) but was moved to the other side of the floor. Significant improvements were done. None of this would not have been possible without Carlos Surratt. Our genealogical association was founded by Carlos Surratt, Dean of Evening Programs at SCC from 1967 – 1994. Please click http://libguides.surry.edu/carlos for more information about this gifted and personable man.

The Surry County Genealogical Association is a non-profit organization formed in 1981. Its purpose is to create and foster interest in genealogy, assist those persons interested in compiling family histories, and to share ideas that may aid in more accurate research.
The SCGA grew out of a genealogy class taught by Carlos Surratt, Evening Dean at Surry Community College. He had long hoped for such an organization and was largely instrumental in bringing together a county-wide group.
