The Blogging from A to Z Challenge is to post everyday (except Sunday) in the month of April 2016 starting with the letter A and going all the way to Z. The theme I chose is Genealogy Tips. At the end I will give a related post from my blog Genealogy: Beyond the BMD.
Y is for Yearbooks
I have a few of my high school year books. Its fun to look back and see all the friends I grew up with. Many of which I keep in touch with today.
I was pleasantly surprised a few years ago when I found that McGill University uploaded the yearbooks for West Hill High School in Montreal West, the school my Dad and his sibling all went to. The year my uncle graduated is missing, but the other 3 are there.
In some school yearbooks they have a section at the back with an update on former students... who got engaged, married, etc. So check a few years ahead too. Also years before they graduated for clubs or sports they participated in.
Don't forget there are other kinds of schools - music, agricultural, and other specialty schools. Check the links below.
