Genealogical Holdings and other Notes:

Most of LAPL's genealogical resources are all located at the Central Library.  The library's impressive collection of genealogical resources is listed at http://www.lapl.org/central/history.html.   The History and Genealogy Department has numerous microfilm readers and printers.  Microfilms are not accessible to patrons.  Films are requested by completing a form, and films are retrieved by library staff.

The catalog is online at http://www.lapl.org

LAPL has an online index of obituaries that appeared in the LA Times.  The index includes celebrities, “rich and famous” notable individuals -- and librarians -- and can be found at http://pubindex.lapl.org/pages/rip.htm

An online index of the library's holdings of city directories can be found at http://pubindex.lapl.org/pages/directories.htm

The library also has an online index of family genealogies that are available at the LAPL.  Click on the "databases" link at the LAPL.org website
