"The Secret Genealogy Collection at Los Angeles Public Library"
Learn about a very special collection that is saved behind closed doors at
the Los Angeles Public Library! It's the "Pamphlet & Manuscript"
collection--an assortment of donatedephemera and genealogy research organized
by surname. Genealogy Librarian Julie Huffman will show you how to search the
collection, and will bring examples of what you might find.
Julie Huffman has been a librarian at Los Angeles Public Library for
13 years and has had the privilege of being the genealogy librarian for five.
Her interest in genealogy started ages ago when her great grandma told her she
was related to the King of Sweden (she's not). Julie has a bachelor's degree in
journalism from the University of Missouri and a master's degree in Library &
Information Science from UCLA. Her hobby is doing her friends' genealogies so
she can learn about other places and history.
FREE to the public. There will be a short break between speakers. The
library will not be open for research. Times are approximate.
