YEARBOOKS, YEARBOOKS, YEARBOOKS…

Ancestry’s got ‘em, and it keeps adding more to its collection:

We just doubled the size of our yearbook collection!

The collection now contains more than 6,000 yearbooks ranging from 1902 to 2005. In conjunction with this yearbook release, we kicked off a yearbook scanning project. You can search the updated yearbook collection for free through the end of October at:

www.ancestry.com/yearbooks.

You can also view the full list of recently added databases, extending back a couple of months, at:

NOTE: If you own any yearbooks that aren’t included in their collection, they’d like to hear from you:

Yearbook Scanning Project

Ancestry.com is compiling a nationwide collection of school yearbooks starting from the time yearbooks began. These yearbooks will be digitized and the resulting images will be made available on our websites. The main purpose of this program is to collect yearbooks and histories from institutions such as schools and libraries, however, individuals with collections are welcome to participate also. Learn more about this project at:
