Bio and Links
Bio Photo The Yucaipa Valley Genealogical Society was created in 1982. The first Board of Directors was: President; Bonnie Jacobsen, Vice President; John Reynolds, Recording Secretary; Rosalind Bennett, Treasurer; Eloise Cunningham. At the close of 1982 there was a total of 59 members of which 53 were Charter Members.
In 2007, under the presidency of Jamie Daniel, the canvassing of Desert Lawn Memorial Park was started.
In 2008, under the presidency of Gena Ortega, the indexing of birth, marriage and death records reported in the Yucaipa-Calimesa News Mirror was added as an additional project.
In 2009, under the presidency of Earl Giddings, an enormous data-base was created to combine all of the previous efforts and includes thousands of photographs of tombstones to be entered on, not only the Society records but also on Find A Grave.
In 2010, under the presidency of Floyd Ferguson, we are adding information on three other local cemeteries; Stewart Sunnyslope, San Gorgonio and Mountain View.
Since many tombstones provide only the year of birth and death, we have undertaken the project to locate additional information from the Social Security Death Index, California Death Index, California Birth Index, California Marriage Index and our YVGS data-base.
We are aware that some of the CADI information of surnames and maiden names are not always spelled correctly but hope they will be beneficial.
When doing your research, you find we have made an incorrect entry, please notify us.
We have no estimate of when these projects will be completed .
We hope we have helped you with your search and welcome you to visit our website.

RE: Ina Nelson
Thank you for finding that. I believe in being as accurate as possible and May is certainly more accurate and correct. Looking at my files, I have Mae but will change that to May. I think my poor typing caused the "a" to be left out of my message or it could be this PC I'm using. It runs slow sometimes and skips letters. I'm not a fast typist but sometimes the system runs slower than I do. Sorry for the confusion. I failed to double check what I was sending.

RE; Cox
Thanks for the two transfers. I see that you have San Bernardino county obituaries to add to memorials. Is there an on line data base that I could access? I have numerous relatives who died in the area and I just don't know where they are interred.

Thanks for updating the page.

I am wondering if you know what happen to my cousin John Allen Mochilchock (Staisa and John's son). According to the California death records he died in Riverside, CA on 8/26/95. Is he buried in Riverside? He was born on 4/27/40. He does not appear to be on Find A Grave. You can reply to my email
