Research Trip on Saturday, 2 February

The next Chula Vista Genealogical Society Research Trip will be on Saturday, 2 February, to the San Diego Public Library in downtown San Diego. Note that this is a change from our earlier plan to visit the San Diego Family History Center in Mission Valley - they will be closed on Saturday in order to honor Gordon Hinckley, the late President of the LDS church who died recently.

The San Diego Public Library has a nice collection of surname books, locality books and periodicals. The major holdings unequaled in the County include a full set of the American Genealogical Biographical Index (AGBI), DAR lineage books, and the New England Historic Genealogical Register. In addition, there are San Diego City Directories, an index for the San Diego Union, and the complete San Diego Union (since 1868) on microfilm.

If you wish to carpool with the group, we will leave the Chula Vista parking garage (the one between F Street (near Marie Callender's) and 3rd Avenue (near Fuddruckers) on the second level about midway between the entrances at 9:30 a.m. If you wish to carpool, please contact Randy at for a seat.

We will plan a trip to the San Diego Family History Center for Saturday, 1 March, since the Escondido Family History Fair has been cancelled.
