We all met and traveled in a comfortable plush bus to Los Angels to visit the library. The bus was only about half full (approximately 25 people) and so not crowded and very comfortable.
Los Angeles Library, with Chula Vista and San Diego Genealogy Society
March 20, 2010,
I had never been to this library before so I was amazed at the size and architecture of the library. Four Floors down and Four Floors up!! The last fourth bottom floor was the genealogy floor. A guide met with the new comers and explained the layout of half of the bottom floor. We were instructed to the way to get periodicals, closed case books, copies and find micrfiche, films and reference books.
Virginia kindly found a table for four and we sat to study.
Susi Pentico met with a cousin from the Foulk/Myers line and shared data.
Her cousin Julie arrived, pulled up a chair to the table next to Susi and they discussed FOULK and MYERS, MEYERS, MOYERS the entire time we were there until the trip end. Susi had a lot to share with this cousin and they found new data also.
The library is large enough to have food stations. We ate at a Chinese fast food found right inside the library for lunch and returned later in the day for a yogurt dessert.
From Susi's blog I copied:
Virgina learned some great information and Ruth found a plat map with Dearman,
Shirley learned some clues also in her lines.
Ruth got the maps copied and we made the bus on time.
