Case Study: Forest Lawn Cemetery

Forest Lawn has a collection of more than 1.2 million historic documents, including the most comprehensive family archives in Western New York, with currently over 350,000 individual family records and growing by 3,500 families per year. However, with so many old and delicate archives, documents were inevitably starting to fall apart and decline in quality. Forest Lawn archives were being stored in a basement and various other locations that didn’t have the capabilities to protect the quality of their documents. Some documents were printed on fragile onion-skinned paper and nails were binding books together. Forest Lawn wanted to centralize their archives to a new location that would preserve their legacy for generations to come.
