MyHeritage Free Full Access to US Yearbook Collection Until May 23, 2020 #events

MyHeritage is offering full access for free for their U.S. Yearbook Collection until May 23, 2020. The collection contains almost 290 million records corresponding to individuals identified and consolidated through name-spotting techniques and algorithmic analysis. Records in this collection will list the person’s name, often their gender, school’s name and location, and likely residence based on the location of the school.

 

Yearbooks are an invaluable resource because they can provide such fascinating information on people we may only have known later in their lives. These records can tell us where and what those people studied, what their interests were, who they hung out with, and how they looked during this formative period.

 

If you try to access the collection after the deadline you will be invited to subscribe to MyHeritage.
