Field trip to NARA at Riverside, CA

This morning I'm going with other members of Southern California Genealogical Society on a field trip to the new National Archives and Records Administration at Riverside.  NARA Pacific Region use to be in Laguna Niguel, CA.  I always meant to get down there one day closed and everything moved to Riverside last year. 

We'll be meeting in the lobby at 11:00 AM for a tour of the facilities.  I've been checking out their website and looking forward to doing research after the tour.  I'm very excited, don't know what I'll find but I'm "game."

My husband and I drove out here yesterday, got a nice room at the local Inn.  Glad we came yesterday, wouldn't want to drive 2+ hours this morning, then the field trip and then do research.  I like to break up the steps.

When my family moved out to California from Chicago we lived in Riverside for about a year.  I went to 9th grade here.  Tomorrow I want to track down the house we rented and drive-by the middle school I attended.  I was too young drive at the time so thank goodness for our GPS.
