Last week, Ancestry doubled the size ofÂ the yearbook collection. The collection now contains more than 6,000 yearbooks ranging from 1902 to 2005.Â You can search the updated yearbook collection for free through the end of October. Click here to search the yearbooks.Â Â In conjunction with this yearbook release,Â Ancestry alsoÂ kicked off a yearbook scanning project. Ancestry.com is compiling a nationwide collection of school yearbooks starting from the time yearbooks began in the U.S. These yearbooks will be digitized and the resulting images will be made available on our websites. The main purpose of this program is to collect yearbooks and histories from institutions such as schools and libraries, however, individuals with collections are welcome to participate also.
