About the Event

The Genealogical Society of Hispanic America-Southern California hosts a presentation by Lenny Trujillo, "The Birth of a Family Icon", on Saturday, May 4, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Family research conducted by Lenny Trujillo led to the discovery of a new family heirloom honoring his ancestor, Manuel Lorenzo Trujillo, which can be shared and enjoyed by current family and future generations.

The hybrid meeting will be held at the Southern California Genealogical Society Family Research Library, 417 Irving Drive in Burbank, California.

Join us in person for networking, access to GSHA-SC reference books, and for a pizza lunch after the 11 am presentation. If you'd rather attend virtually, a Zoom invitation will be sent to all GSHA-SC members. Make sure you have a free Zoom account. Non-members must RSVP by emailing

Lenny Trujillo is a direct descendant and a third great-grandson of Lorenzo Trujillo and Maria Dolores Archuleta, who settled in the San Bernardino Valley city of Alta, California, in the early 1840s. As a direct male descendant, Lenny was able to confirm through Y-DNA testing the Indigenous ancestry of his Trujillo family line in New Mexico. Freed by retirement, Lenny volunteers to help individuals trace their ancestry, and he hosts the monthly Hispanic Tuesday sessions at the SCGS Library for GSHA Southern California Chapter.
