Online Yearbooks Are Not Just About Students recently updated its Yearbook CollectionRemember that you won't only find teachers and students in these publications, you may find advertisements as well. So when searching these materials keep yourself open to the fact that your ancestor might have placed an advertisement in one of these publications. Sometimes ads contain good genealogical clues as well.

  1. My HS yearbook contains "patron ads" which parents/grandparents often bought to congratulate their graduate, and included siblings' names. I'm not sure when that started, though...probably a recent (1970's & later) development?
