I want to share my experience in researching Yearbooks. First, I was looking for a picture of my husband in high school. So I looked at U.S. School Yearbooks, 1900 – 1999, for Booker T. Washington High School. I found a picture, but it wasn’t him. So I went to the page, and the view was the person next to him. So it was indexed wrong.
Another time I was looking for my sorority sister’s senior college picture. I found her name, but the image was not hers. Since I knew the person pictured, I looked for their name and found my sorority sister’s picture. That indeed was the fault of the yearbook staff.
Something good did come from my search for my distant cousin. I found him in high school and college. Also, while searching for him, I saw his father’s picture. His father worked for a school system and showed up in the database.
Below is my Senior High School picture.
This week the theme is “Yearbook.”
