Visiting the Immigrant Genealogical Society and Library - Post 476 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

In April 2013, I was invited to speak about searching at the Immigrant Genealogical Society and Library in Burbank.  We drove up on a Sunday morning to our daughter's home in Huntington Beach, and I left Linda there while I drove on to Burbank.

1)  The entrance:

2)  Inside the library from the back wall:

There were only a few people in attendance at my talk.  That is Toni Perrone, the founder of IGSL in the white sweater, and Elyse Doerflinger next to her.  Unfortunately, I cannot remember the names of the others.

This was a very interesting place.  As you can see it's a hole-in-the-wall place, but the walls were lined with books, and they were well organized.  My memory is that there was a second room on the other side of the wall, but I may be wrong.  More books!

After the meeting, I drove back to Huntington Beach and enjoyed dinner and play time with my two granddaughters.  We probably came home the next day.
