Saturday Night Genealogy Fun — Your School Yearbook Photos

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It’s Saturday Night again – 

time for some more Genealogy Fun!!


Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

1)   Ancestry.com updated their School Yearbook collection and it is FREE to access until 2 September.  Use https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/yearbooksindex/.

2)  Show us your school yearbook photos from the Ancestry collection, or from your personal photo collection.  Tell us the school and year.  Add your spouse or best friend or children if you wish!

  3)  Tell us about it in a blog post of your own, in a comment on this blog, or in a Facebook post.

Here’s mine:


1)  I was a 1961 high school graduate of San Diego High School in San Diego, California.  Here is the entry in the 1961 SDHS yearbook:


I think I wrote that myself trying to be funny.  I had to check a YouTube video yesterday to check out the Hully Gully song and dance.  I don’t recall what Boys Federation was.  I recall Veni Vidi Vici.  I was skinny then – 5’7″ and 120 pounds… I really didn’t enjoy high school.  Math, Latin, Social Studies, Physics and Chemistry were great, but gym was terrible.  The only sport I was good at was handball.  Gym ruined my GPA.   I had no social life being smaller than every girl but one at the school.  

2)  Here is my wife, Linda Leland, in her 1960 yearbook of Abraham Lincoln High School in San Francisco:



And in the 1964 San Francisco State yearbook:


I showed you mine – please show me yours!!
