Los Angeles: Research Day, April 6

If you've never visited the Los Angeles Regional Family History Center in West Los Angeles, here's a great opportunity for assisted research with the experts.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County will meet from 1-5pm Sunday, April 6, at the FHC, 10741 Santa Monica Blvd. Parking is free, but the program is only open to current paid members of JGSCV. However, anyone may join or renew memberships at the door.

Experienced JGSCV members and Family History Center volunteers will be available to help members get the most out of these resources, including computer assistance with many popular genealogical databases including Ancestry.com (full access), Footnote.com, Heritage Quest, World Vital Records, Godfrey Memorial Library on-line resources and more!

The FHC has an extensive collection of microfilms, including U.S. and international census records, Eastern European and other international and domestic vital records, maps and gazetteers. Bring research documents with you, as well as a flash drive to download electronic images of online images. Hard copying is also available.

LAFHC volunteer Barbara Algaze who is the JGSLA librarian, will provide an introduction to the FHC resources.
