As future years come and go, I hope this recording of old Yearbooks will prove a source of happy memories for us, our parents, and all who have had a part in helping make these Yearbooks a reality. 

Special Message - I Need Your Help to Finish this Project

I started scanning yearbook for archiving on November 11, 2009 and as of this date, I have scanned and Indexed over 470 Yearbooks which contained over 57,000 pages and over 500,000 names.  Now I need more Yearbooks to scan and index.  Please review the schools that are shown in RED and check with your family members (children, parents, grandparents, etc) to see if they have one of the yearbooks not currently indexed.  My e-mail is shown as the bottom of this page, so e-mail me for arrangements for pickup and delivery.  Thanks you for your help.
