FREE Microfilm Readers Available

We received this email from our friends at the Jewish Genealogy Society of Los Angeles, which is hosting this year's International Association of Jewish Genealogy Societies. The conference will be held July 11-16 at the brand-new JW Marriott in downtown Los Angeles.

"My name is Barbara Algaze and I am a member of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles. We have obtained about 10 microfilm readers from the Laguna Nigel branch of the National Archives when they moved to their new location. We will be using the readers during our upcoming conference at the LA Live, JW Marriot Hotel July 11th through July 16th. However, when the conference is over, we will no longer need these machines.

They will be available at no cost - they just need to be picked up at the hotel on Friday, July 16th."

Please contact Barbara directly if you are interested.

  1. OMG! I really want one of those for our San Joaquin Genealogy Society. We really need one. Thanks Paula for the heads up! Now I just have to find a ride for the machine from LA to Stockton. If you know of anyone, we will be happy to pay for the gas and any expenses the driver may have.
