EssexOA and KentOA are scanning high school yearbooks to preserve the books and information for future generations. The searchable documents will make it easier for the OA researcher to assist family historians with their research. The yearbooks are scanned at the Leddy Library, U of Windsor, and are archived on the SWODA, WPL, and OA servers. Older yearbooks (pre1971) are available on the Member’s Library (see Schools).
We would welcome scanning your personal yearbook (if not already scanned). If interested, contact the copy firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange scanning your yearbook. If interested you can assist with the scanning process, if you have time. All yearbooks will be returned with a searchable digital copy for your personal files (due to copyright and privacy concerns do not distribute). Most Ambassador yearbooks are scanned and available at uwindsor.ca/swoda publications.
If you are cleaning out an attic and want to donate yearbooks, please contact us at email@example.com .
