Ancestry Updates Canada, Selected School Yearbooks, 1901-2010

Were you in a school yearbook? If so how do you feel about what you can read years later? How many of your classmates can you recall?

This Canadian collection was originally reported on the blog on 21 July 2015. Ancestry’s information about this 10 May 2021 update (it didn’t go online at that date) is “Replaced old records with new updated records for 240 additional yearbooks.”

On 7 August 2020, there were 2,475,234 records in the database. With this update there are 2,318,578 records.  A decrease! What happened? What books are new? Ancestry keeps that a secret.

Ontario still accounts for the lion’s share — 1,648,511 records, in September 2016 there were 1,157,348 Ontario records.

For Ottawa, there are a good number of years for Ashbury College (1918-1988), Elmwood School (1923-1988)  and Carleton University (1943-1980). Others have just a few.
