On April 19th the Church of Latter Day Saints Family History Center in Orange will hold an all-day fair including workshops that have applications to local history. For example, last year, they offered Spanish Land Grants in the Southwest, How to Research a Cemetery, Photo Retouching for Beginners, Document Sources, and County Websites, just to name a few. No details on this year's program, but you might want to save the date on your calendar if you're interested.
By the way, I'm told the "Bear Tree" store at Hobby City -- one of the best remaining examples of programmatic architecture in Orange County -- is no more. And just like that, Southern California crept one more increment toward total blandness.
