Bio and Links
Bio Photo If any memorial for Forest Lawn doesn't yet have a photo, please put in a photo request. We've got a great bunch of volunteers eager to assist, and will help us to keep the memorials accurate.

EDIT REQUESTS:Due to the large number of memorials, I can only accept corrections that are submitted through the EDIT button. Go to the edit button, then suggest OTHER section to include where the info came from, so that I can see where the links or details make sense. Otherwise, your corrections may take time for me to research and update.

PLEASE request a photo. It's the easiest way to confirm dates and spellings of names.TRANSFER REQUESTS:Please use the edit button, go to the OTHER area and fill in the details. Please understand that I am happy to transfer to family, sometimes friends, but need to know you are serious about MAINTAINING the memorial once it is transferred. It breaks my heart to see neglected memorials, or multiple update requests ignored.

Please be patient with edit requests. I am in the process of recuperating from hospitalization.

Virtual Cemetery: Military Veterans at Cypress Forest Lawn
I grew up on military bases, and knew guys and gals from every branch of the service. Some made it home, some didn't, and some still suffer. For those who served, I honor you. Painstakingly adding every Veteran to this virtual cemetery. Over 1530 had been located initially, and that number is now well over 1900. Slowly but surely, photo volunteers are adding a photo to each grave. If you find a veteran's memorial and it is not part of this virtual cemetery yet, please let me know the memorial number and it will be added. If it is not a memorial managed by me, please submit through the messages below.Update: as of March 18 2016, we have located 1935 veterans memorials and the numbers continue to grow. Thanks everyone for continuing to let me know about every veteran's grave found at Cypress. My virtual cemeteries for this project contain ALL identified veterans memorials at either Forest Lawn Cypress or Long Beach in the main category. As I've had a chance to review them, they are also moved into a category by last name (to make retrieval easier, and to manage the project better). IF you come across a veteran that is not listed (ie one I do not manage or have listed on these virtual cemeteries) please send me a message with the memorial number and I'll add it to the database I keep separately.

Many thanks to the fine efforts of the collaborators on the Veterans project.

Source information is important. Stories fill in the details. If you'd like to write a bio for any of the memorials I manage, please submit using the edit button.

Name includes "AWAKENING FAITH" - This was due to a mass upload that went awry that FAG wasn't able to fix. Slowly but surely, we're finding them. Please send a gentle request using the EDIT button.

Note="FALSE" - Again, this was an error introduced during an upload by FAG. Difficult to find them all, so feel free to request an edit on any you find. [identified one batch #104654576 thru #104656934. That is 2358 memorials that have to be corrected one at a time -- all in Sunrise Section. There may be others. So far, I've corrected 104654576 thru 104655070 as of 3/18/2016]

No birth date:When we started the Forest Lawn Cypress and Long Beach, CA project, the data available 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. If you'd like to check their website, then submit edits, I'd love the assistance. Just let me know.

If you are directly related, let me know.If you post a photo to a memorial that I manage, PLEASE submit an edit request so that I can add any details that are different.

Any photo that I personally posted is ok to use for personal family history only. I do not authorize my photos to be uploaded to pay sites, or for use in publications UNLESS YOU CONTACT ME SPECIFICALLY FOR PERMISSION.

Pioneer Cemetery Sylmar Came across a listing of burials at this cemetery, and added them to Find A Grave. Great updates from Ann have increased the information available, as she and her mother have looked up death certificates and updated the dates, places, and included family names where possible. Collaboration is SO cool!!

RE: Continuing thanks
I'm saddened to hear if your continued health issues this year.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with, and thank you for continuing to post photo requests.
I will fulfill every request you send out ( to FLC)
Just FYI, much of my work at Ling Beach municipal cemetery has been published in a book by Claudine Burnett called
"Died in Long Beach: Cemeyery Tales." You can find it on Amazon or any bookstore.
Thoughts and prayers, Dukr

Thank you so much Pam. Myrtleine is my mom's cousin. I live close enough to Forest Lawn and I will be going to get a photo ASAP. I put in Myrtleine's dates and maiden name. Again thank you so much!

Mark Timothy Jones @ FLC
Hi Pam,

I don't mean to "bug" you but I suggested two edits for Mark Timothy Jones recently (his dates of birth and death and linking him to his parents). I know it has not been that long but I am anxious to complete the memorial for his mother, Sarah Jane Yoho Jones - she passed away recently - for the family. If you have any questions about the suggested edits, please contact me and THANK YOU in advance.

RE: Rogers photo
Quite welcomed Pam. One of my easiest photos. I live a half mile from this small cemetery. Take good care. Glad to help. My wife taught Mrs. rogers brother in the second grade, at Sacred Heart School in Hattiesburg. I believe his name was Pat?
