Yearbook Scanning Project

High School Yearbook Scanning Project

EssexOGS and KentOGS are scanning high school yearbooks to preserve the books and information for future generations. The searchable documents will make it easier for the OGS researcher to assist family historians with their research. The yearbooks are scanned at the Leddy Library, U of Windsor, and will be archived on the SWODA, WPL, and OGS servers.

YB190219, The enclosed MS excel worksheet dated Feb 19 2019 lists the High School yearbooks scanned, which is approx 452 as of late February 2019. The yearbooks listed with a H or WPL indicates the books are scheduled to be scanned (360 books). A red colour or blank space indicates that we are searching for that yearbook for preservation. We would welcome scanning a copy for you or arranging for you to assist with the scanning process, if you have time. Contact David at essexwebmaster@ogs.on.ca to arrange for yearbook pickup. 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

Also, if you are cleaning out an attic and want to donate yearbooks, please contact us at essexwebmaster@ogs.on.calso
