Hi John,
Virginia started keeping birth and death records in 1853 at the county level. Records were kept from this time until 1896. Records were most often only recorded in a register and not an individual record. From 1896-1912, no records were kept. In mid 1912, birth and death certificates started being issued. Many of the old records were destroyed in courthouse fires and by other means. So, depending on the years you are looking for, they may or may not be a record. If you are looking for a record from Buchanan County, I will try to help.
