Researching Pennsylvania Ancestors

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
LIBRARY RE-OPENS - JULY 6TH
(notice posted May 18, 2021 - is subject to change)


The Southern California Genealogical Library in Burbank will reopen for research on Tuesday, July 6. We will be complying with any regulations set by the Los Angeles County Health Department. We expect any librarian or staff member will be fully vaccinated by this time and hope that those who come to the library will also be vaccinated.

On research days we will be closing by 3:00 p.m. instead of 4:00 p.m.to allow for thorough cleaning of the library. By October, we will see if it is safe enough to open the library for our larger interest groups to meet in person. Each group will decide whether they wish to a) meet online only, b) meet in person only or c) meet online and in person. If an interest group normally meets in person until 4:00 p.m., the library will be open that day until 4:00 p.m.

We encourage Members to log-in and take advantage of the many benefits available to them in the Members Only area. We'd like to emphasize our collection of databases available for online use, as well as the new Southern California 1890 Project (R) database. We have an extensive collection of recorded Webinars, Jamboree Sessions, and issues of The Searcher, all online. Our research team is taking orders for research assistance and our store is still shipping orders. Best of health to you all.

Keep safe everyone!
