Yearbooks, alumni lists, and other school related records can be rich in details about the people in your family tree. You can learn what clubs and activities family members took part in, and see photographs from their school years. Some yearbooks even include insights into the student and faculty’s personalities with quotes and comments. Yearbooks typically include individual photographs of the students, as well as activities, group shots, and school events.
The records of schools throughout the world have become a valuable source of information. They offer insight into the history of the schools and their students and sometimes include pictures.
Like some other types of records, they became more comprehensive after the turn of the twentieth century. They often include rosters of teachers, class photos and lists, and school histories.
