Those interested in Los Angeles history should grab their calendars and circle this Saturday, October 25. The Third Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar, nicknamed "Archives Live!" by presenting group L.A. As Subject, brings 65 historical collections and archives to USC with a full lineup of presentations and documentary screenings from 10am to 5pm.

Some of those who will introduce themselves to the public include the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, El Pueblo Historical Monument, Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles City Archives, the Los Angeles Public Library, as well as the Boyle Heights Historical Society, Society of California Archivists and the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center Library and Archive.

If L.A’s past isn’t enough, you can research yourself. Genealogy experts will be on hand to give attendees the chance to look through their own family history via the 1930 census and DNA analysis. More information, including the schedule of talks and screenings, can be found on L.A. as Subject's website.

The Los Angeles Archives Bazaar / USC Davidson Conference Center, 3415 S. Figueroa (at Jefferson Boulevard) / Free / Visitors can get free or discounted admissions to museums in Exposition Park / Parking at USC Parking Structure D is $8.
