“Yearbooks in Family History”
Donald R. Snow
Categories: RR, IR
Yearbooks are mostly from schools, universities, and military units,
but also from companies and churches. These are sometimes also called
directories. Websites are collecting and posting yearbooks online and
these include free websites such as FamilySearch Digital Library,
Internet Archive, Digital Public Library of America, school websites,
and many others. This presentation will show examples and what they
contain, and how to find them online. Besides identifying the person,
they usually contain photos and information about activities. If you
have old yearbooks yourself, there are websites that will scan and
post them online for free. The notes for this class and related
articles, all with active Internet links, are posted on Don’s website
