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.

This man is my husband's great uncle. Are you quite certain that he was in WWI? He would have been only 15 when America joined this action, and I can find Riley Abner Hughes in WWI files at or Fold3. Do you have any record of the plaque being an officially issued by the US military?
