Thank you Alicia. I did as you suggested and it was a big help.

I was at my Family History Center today. It's in Hacienda Heights, in the San Gabriel Valley just east of Los Angeles. I told the head of the library, Kim Austin, about this site and she plans to join us.

She's Anglo but she's researching her husband's Mexican roots. She should be a MAJOR asset to Nuestros Ranchos, in my opinion.

Kim told me Salt Lake City has a 20/20/20 policy regarding Family History Centers. They need to generate at least 20 film orders a month, and have twenty patrons a month, and I don't recall if there was a third 20, or not. To keep a Family History Center functioning and to authorize expenditures on new equipment, and Internet upgrades....

So if anyone's FHC is teetering on closure you might space out your visits. Rather than one, or two long visits, perhaps three, or four shorter visits.

My FHC is very nice. Volunteers and patrons bring the bounty form their gardens to share. One man brings huge beefsteak tomatoes, I bring yerba buena....
