Yearbooks & Commemoratives

Updated 27 July 2022; 441,702 records, covering 429 schools

This database includes teachers, administrators, graduates and some lower grade students compiled from high school yearbooks, college yearbooks and various student lists and commemorative books.

This is a volunteer project for the benefit of the genealogical community and we welcome and solicit yearbooks and/or yearbook information from all sources. If you would like to be a contributor to this project, email requesting an Excel template file. This will be emailed to you and you may enter the information contained within the yearbooks you own. It can then be emailed back to us for inclusion in this database. Your name will be added to the list of volunteers who have contributed.

If you do not have Excel, contact us and tell us what spreadsheet program you do have. We will make every effort to work with you.

We also will accept donations of any yearbooks you may have and no longer want. These can be mailed to our address shown on the Contact Us page or, if you live in the Long Island area, dropped off at our monthly meeting at the Hicksville VFW. These yearbooks will be typed by volunteers and included in our database.

If you have yearbooks sitting on a shelf, stuck in the attic, or down in the basement, consider dusting them off and including them in this database for the benefit of all genealogists everywhere. No matter where you live within the US … or outside of the US … your contribution is important.

As more books are typed and computerized, this list will be updated.

413 different schools, many with a range of over 30 years.

Please note that the Surname (e.g. Last Name) is a required entry field. But since exact spellings are not always known, to aid your search we offer three different ways to specify Surnames...

  1. Exact Match ("is exactly") - This is the default surname search method.
  2. Soundex ("sounds like") - This option enables you to specify a surname spelling it out as best you can, and it will return results that "sound" similar to what you spelled out.
  3. Wild Card - With this option you can replace part of the surname with a * to match any number of letters, or _ to match a single letter. So for example, Sch* will return all names starting with Sch. Similarly, Schl_tz might return results such as Schlitz or Schlotz. 

NOTE: The wild card option applies ONLY to the surname. You can just enter the first few letters of a First Name; the search automatically adds a wild card to the end of the First Name.

For whichever of the above surname search options you would like to use, simply select the appropriate radio button option below the input field on the form.


* Matches multiple characters. 
_ Matches one single character.
