This study documents research conducted in support of the living history program at Rancho Los Cerritos, a national, state and local historic landmark located in Long Beach, California, under the guidance of Kathie A. Schey, who served as Research Director for this project. The research paradigm developed included subject selection, evaluation and selection of sources, identification of research tasks, definition of researcher qualifications, supervision and preparation of all phases of actual research and determination of the final format for retention and presentation of research. Detailed biographical studies were produced for twenty-five subjects, who lived at or near Rancho Los Cerritos from the Spanish colonial era until 1942. As living history characters, they will support interpretation of the history of the site, integrating regional and national themes as appropriate through site tours, additional programming, and outreach efforts. Preparation of scholarly and educational materials will also be based on this research.
