Yearbooks Free on World Vital Records 'Til Aug. 12
Posted by Diane

I just got an e-mail from subscription site World Vital Records that its large collection of high school and college yearbooks is free until Aug. 12.

You can search the entire collection at once, or one yearbook at a time by choosing the first letter of the school name and scrolling (or using your web browser’s Find function) to find the yearbook you need.

Here’s a yearbook page before Smooth:

The images in the collection are useless. They appear to have been scaled down to about only 25% of their original size, making text unreadable and faces unrecognizable.

Try saving the image. When you open it, it is clearer.
