Search Canadian School Yearbooks on

By Diane Haddad

Subscription genealogy site has added Canadian middle school, junior high, high school and college yearbooks from 1908-2010. The 100,000 pages come from almost 800 institutions across Canada. Yearbooks are good sources of photos of ancestors, as well as details such as activities and hobbies.

A filmstrip at the bottom of the yearbook viewer (similar to the one on Ancestry-owned Fold3) helps you “scroll” through pages. This one is from the 1938 annual for Vancouver’s Grandview Commerce High School.
