IN HONOR OF ALL VETERANS, MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS, MILITARY FAMILIES -- I ask for assistance. Any Memorial in Forest Lawn Long Beach or Cypress that has a military connection, please let me know. I am attempting to add them to the virtual cemetery project MILITARY VETERANS AT FOREST LAWN. In addition, for any other memorials I have created, if there is a military connection, please let me know. Thank you.|
For any update or request -- Send me a message through the EDIT button (at the top right of the page)- or through a SUGGEST A CORRECTION (SAC) a message will get forwarded to me -- and stays linked to the memorial. I try to respond within a few days for each message, but get behind sometimes. ADD A REQUEST FOR PHOTO as we have a great bunch of volunteers, AND, it helps to verify the information added.
Working on project to enter all of Forest Lawn Cypress and Long Beach, CA. Thanks to all the volunteers!!! Searching for family across the miles too.
When we started the project, the data available for Cypress Forest Lawn only included a death date, no birth date. However, Forest Lawn has updated their website, and now include the birth year, IF they transcribed it correctly. So, If you'd like to help out, please, feel free to look up anyone that does not have a birth date listed and send me the corrected info. There is no way that I can EVER get through every one of these individually. Double check against the SSDI or CADI to be sure, as the info from Forestlawn's website contains errors also.
If you add a grave photo to a memorial that I manage, or come across additional info, feel free to let me know and I'll be happy to update add additional grave marker info, etc. I rely on contacts from the edit button to tell me when someone is interested in a particular memorial, surname, or family. Yes, I'm willing to update, and will transfer if you ask nice and plan to stick around to maintain the memorial.
Known issues: AWAKENING FAITH IN NAME
If you come across a name that includes "Awakening Faith" I apologize. I submitted a spreadsheet with hundreds of memorials in that area, and the data was uploaded incorrectly. Unfortunately, FAG has no way to do a mass correction on these entries, so I am slowly working my way through them. I can't search for the incorrect info as it's in the nickname field.
Also, if you find a listing where the memorial transcription says "FALSE", it's a similar ERROR. Please send me an edit from the item and I'll delete that bit of text.
Re: RELATED INDIVIDUALS
If two grave markers occupy the same space number or, are next to one another and share the same last name, I link them as spouses. This information does not come from any source other than the proximity of the graves, unless I'm contacted by someone providing additional info.
LINKING FAMILY MEMBERS
I'm happy to link family members, if you'll kindly provide the FAG memorial # along with the name to link to. But please remember, links go from a child to their parents -- If I did not create the child's entry, I cannot add the link for the parents for you. Spouses are easier, because either one can create the link to the other.
IF you are in the Cypress or Long Beach CA area, and can help with this project, please contact me, or look for the South Coast Gravers.We could use help with walking the sites.
PLEASE verify all information independently. If there is no picture of the grave marker yet, put in a photo request. It's the best way to be sure you've gotten all the info off the grave marker.
THANK YOU TO THE VOLUNTEERS
The majority of Find A Grave contributors are really nice people, who spend time adding to this resource for all of us.
There are great data contributors, who search out sources, add details, and link family members through careful research.
There are photo volunteers who spend hours walking the graves, taking photos, cropping, posting and filling in the location information.
There are even traveling Find A Gravers, who spend time filling requests away from home! This helps all of us.
Thanks to Chris Mills for sharing, and the volunteers who send more info, particularly those who walk the cemetery and fill in blanks in the spreadsheets. This is definitely a mutual effort! This project has benefited from great volunteers, including Frances Cope, C. Bryan, Billy Brown, Karen Bink and many others who continue to add detail to the memories of these folks.
And yes, I am still researching my own family trees. I'm the primary family historian for several branches of the family, as well as many of my close friends. I'm helping folks to organize and digitize family history documents.
As I have time, I'm slowing scanning and adding information on family members, linking the family lines, and adding memorials when I know where they were buried.

|Maureen R.||Shirley Falcioni|
Dear Pam ~
Thank you so much for entering a death date for Shirley Falcioni, at Forest Lawn.
In my geno research, I've come across her birth date: June 17, 1930.
Not certain how I go about adding it in the Find-a-Grave system or whether that's something that you can do for me.
|Richard Dixon||Requesting transfer of memorial|
I'm Richard my grandmothers memorial #105001244. I am asking if you can transfer that memorial to me so I can do more in her memory. My Wife and I would like to place some pictures in her memory for our son.
|TM||RE: Robert Mullinax|
The photo request has been filled. Thank you for suggesting this. I am new to Find A Grave and am learning how things work. :)
