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.

   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. An elevator is available.  For a Google map to this location, click here.


Genealogy Workshops:

Genealogy Workshops are offered on a variety of subjects at 6:00 p.m. before the General Meeting. Come join other people interested in doing more effective research on their ancestors.
