On this page you will find the following:
1. THE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE
This site was created to have a well-attended and seriously successful 50th reunion. Also, hopefully, to re-connect and stay connected with our classmates (even those who will not be attending the reunion). Our next goal is to make this site a scrapbook of memories for all classmates and their families. Our site is private!
Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our page is on this page. If you have questions, please contact David Bratton-Kearns (Kearns).
2. PRIVACY NOTICE
All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. The host of this web site, ClassCreator.com, is a locally-owned business. They understand the importance of your privacy. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.
Your contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by classmates. Each classmate has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow classmates by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.
Finding your class web site Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:
Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each classmate's profile page. This way you will be able to contact classmates without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.
All class Email news sent from us to you via this web site: For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure you receive email communications from us.
Please note that if you do not want your name and picture on this site it may be removed by contacting David Bratton-Kearns (Kearns). This will end all communications to you from the La Mirada High School Class of 1969, unless you ask that special arrangements be made.
3. SETTING UP YOUR PROFILE
Most important section!!!
In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing a minimum of your email address, and a password.
To set up your profile: locate the "Classmate Profiles" link and locate your name and click on it. As info, your name was typed into this database from the 1969 yearbook. I discovered a lot of typos in the yearbook, so your name may not be spelled correctly. Hang in there and give me (David) a buzz if any questions. Otherwise, follow the prompts to create your profile.
Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow classmates. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we need to contact you by snail mail or phone. Your information will never be given to other classmates without your permission.
Please add a current picture to your profile as a master photo; this will make it more fun. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. We'll all enjoy seeing how you've changed!
If your name is not already on the site, but you were part of the La Mirada High School Class of 1969, contact us and your name will be added.
Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up to date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your classmates are up to!
Choosing a password: Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "remember me" will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!
If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password". If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set-up your account, contact me (David Bratton-Kearns). and I'll get on it as soon as I can.
4. "MISSING" CLASSMATES
The wonderful part about this site is that it came pre-setup by Class Creator. I just had to enter names. The site assembles a missing list for us, based solely on the names of people who don't have profiles; so until you have a profile, the site will consider you "missing".
And as I said previously, the data base of names were those classmates who had pictures in our senior class section. I know for a fact that a number of fellow classmates didn't get their pictures taken, so these people are very missing. So please reach out to everyone you know from our class and direct them to this site. And if you have information about any classmate, listed or not listed, please let me (David Kearns) know.
5. COMMUNICATING WITH CLASSMATES
To contact a fellow classmate, you may simply use the email option at the top left of each Classmate's Profile page. This feature will allow open communication between Classmates, while protecting your personal information. If you wish to share your email address or other personal information within a message written on our site, the site will not block you from doing so.
6. ADDING PICTURES TO YOUR PROFILE
Adding current pictures is not a requirement to participate on the site, but it certainly is a nice way to get to know people again. We've had reports of classmates who were routinely running into each other without knowing it, because...well....we've all changed a little over the years! :)
