Find a school yearbook

[UPDATED April 2014]


Investigators know where to go to get our hands on a particular school yearbook. Sometimes they’re found at the school or the local library. But don’t discount state libraries and archives, and state and local historical societies in your search. For example, the Nevada State Historical Society posts a list of the school yearbooks it retains onsite. The librarians in these organizations know their collections quite well and are enormously helpful. When I’ve needed more indepth research at a particular institution, I’ve become a member (the fee is minimal) and received hundreds of dollars worth of essential research. Here’s a example of one way to search more broadly to find school yearbooks. See other sources for yearbooks online at Genealogy Links and Databases.

  6. Elementary schools produce student/parent directories and school newsletters. These are ephemeral but may be retained by the school library. Call the school for this. Small elementary schools don’t usually publish yearbooks. You may find names of classmates on the website Classmates or at Facebook.

  16. Find school yearbooks for high schools (most aren’t on the Web) at the high school library, the city library, the local historical society or the state archives. Find other people who went to the same school during your years, see if they have a yearbook. These folks are collecting yearbooks from Oklahoma schools: http://www.accessgenealogy.com/yearbook/oklahoma_yearbook_project.htm.

    Elementary schools may not have produced a school roster, but there may be class photos. Find those at the school, the local library or historical society. Small town schools may have had class photos published in the local newspaper.

    Most states define public records to encompass school directory information — student names, years of attendance — which may be available through the school district administration.
