About the Glendora Genealogical Group:

The Glendora Genealogical Group is a group of people who are interested in genealogy and live in the Glendora, California area. 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, and get together once a month to hear speakers, watch videos, go on field trips, and share genealogical information. Visitors are welcome to join us.


General Meeting Information:

General Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except December) at

   The Elm Room

   La Fetra Center

   333 E. Foothill Blvd.
