Genealogical Holdings and other Notes:

The East Los Angeles Community Library houses the Chicano Resource Center, which was established in 1976.  Included among the resources, the center’s librarian, Rik Gutierrez, maintains several scrapbooks of biographical material, lists of periodicals and other resources.  He also keeps a folder of “how-to” information on Mexican American genealogy and a lengthy bibliography of titles useful to family historians.

The East Los Angeles Library also has extensive microfilm periodical holdings that include titles from cities all over California and from other states.  Mexico is also represented.  Many of the titles were published in the 1970’s but some date back to the mid-1800’s.  Community newspapers kept by the library include the Civic Center Sun (1937-42), Eastside Sun (1945-76) and Belvedere Citizen (1934-72), among others.  There are no indexes.

The “Cultural Needs Assessment, Environmental Impact Report for the Metro Red Line Eastside Extension,” produced by the Los Angeles County Metro Transportation Authority in 1995, includes many photographs of people, businesses, shops, groups, buildings, etc., in the East LA area.  Scrapbooks documenting people, places and events to the history of East Los Angeles from 1934-94 contain photocopies of articles and chapters of books, newspaper clippings, etc.

(Description and newspaper list extracted from an article in The Searcher March/April 2003, Volume 40, No. 2, published by the Southern California Genealogical Society).
