Yearbook Index Project

If you are interested in volunteering for a genealogy project, you might want to consider the following.  The German Genealogy Group (, a nonprofit organization, has created an online Yearbooks & Commemoratives index.  The group states on their webpage, “The database includes teachers, administrators, graduates, and random grade students compiled from high school yearbooks, college yearbooks and various student lists and commemoratives. “  Currently the database includes 365 yearbooks and commemoratives of schools from all around the country.  If you still have your high school or college yearbook and would like to include it in the database, you can email the group at and request their indexing template file, which is in Excel format.  This will be emailed to you, and after you have completed entering the names, you will email the spreadsheet back to them.  You can do all the indexing work at home on your own computer and at your leisure.  When you are finished, your name will be added to their list of contributors on the “credits and thanks” page.  If you would like to check out the database, here is the link:
