Glendora is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States, 23 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.  As of the 2010 Census, the population of Glendora was 50,073. (Wikipedia)

 Welcome: The Glendora Genealogical Group (GGG) was established in 1984 and currently has over 85 members. Regular General Meetings with a guest speaker are held beginning at 7:00 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month throughout the year and are open to the public. Before the General Meeting, a general instructional class, the Refresher Class, begins at 6:00 pm.  These meetings do not meet in December.
 

 About the Glendora Genealogical Group: The Glendora Genealogical Group is a group of people who are interested in genealogy and live in the Glendora and surrounding areas. Despite the name, few, if any, of them are doing research on ancestors who may have lived in Glendora. Most are researching family lines elsewhere; they get together once a month to hear speakers, watch videos, go on field trips, and share genealogical information. Visitors are always welcome to join us.

 General Meeting Information:  General Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month (except December). Interesting topics are presented on a variety of topics at

       The Elm/Oak Rooms

        La Fetra Senior Center

        Glendora, Los Angeles County, California


  Directions: Take Foothill Blvd. three blocks east of Glendora Ave. Turn left (north) at the intersection of Foothill Blvd. and Minnesota Ave.  Parking is on the street or in the lot across the street.  Enter the building through the Minnesota Ave. entrance and take the stairs on your right.
