Subject: [CSGA] Los Angeles Archives Bazaar
Date: Tue, 28 Aug 2007 02:05:41 EDT
This just came over the Southern CA Genealogical Society list and I thought
it might be of interest to other CA genealogists who are not members of SCGS.
Students and teachers, genealogists, family historians, and local history
enthusiasts will find a treasure trove of L.A. history at the 2nd Annual Los
Angeles Archives Bazaar. Presented by L.A. as Subject, a research
collective hosted by the USC Libraries, the Bazaar offers numerous resources
for exploring virtually any subject related to the Los Angeles region. The
event is designed to spotlight archives and collections -- public and
private, large and small -- throughout Los Angeles County.
SCGS will be well represented at the Bazaar, which will be held Saturday,
September 29, from 10:30am to 4pm at the Huntington Library in San Marino.
SCGS will be one of 41 archives exhibiting during the bazaar and SCGS
members and will be offering free lookups using Ancestry.com and other
digital resources. In addition, Doug Miller and I will each be conducting a
short presentation, one on Family History and the other on the use of DNA in
Attendees can browse collections, schedule research visits, and consult with
the day, educational programming will cover a range of topics from how to
preserve your historical collection, family genealogy, to digital archives.
