Welcome! This site is used for linking to other sites that house various projects of my own (or that others have asked me to post.)
The latest project has been the Ironton High School 1928 Yearbook photos. If you have family found in the 1930 Ironton census with teenage children, chances are they will be found in some of these photos, which cover the grades 7-12 and the graduating years 1928-1933.
I believe that this book originally belonged to Dorothy Chinn (7th grade in this year.) I would love to hear from her family. And there is a marvelous photo of Clara Sherbourne (12th grade in 1928) that if her family does not have it, they will surely want a copy. There is also an portrait of Principal Carl Larsen and a photo tribute to A. F. Hixson. Most of the pages have been scanned at a lower resolution, but can be scanned at a higher resolution to appear more sharp if you contact me directly.
The class pictures (grades 7-11) are VERY large. I did that on purpose so people could see the detail of the faces. Unfortunately, the younger the class, the less information is available about them. Since they are large in size, I probably won't leave them there long as they are taking a large amount of space. So enjoy them while they are there in the size that they are. Also, be advised that because they are so large, they load VERY slowly.
I am in the process of scanning the other sections of the yearbook. The clubs, sports, and general info, etc. They'll be added as soon as time permits. And the "prettying" up of the pages will occur later... I thought it was more beneficial to spend the time adding the info.
I've also typed up many of the names, lists, and rosters, so that they could be searched. However, I haven't double checked every word, so if you don't find the name you are looking for, look at the scanned pages anyway, you might find it.
Last, please DO use the guest book and tell us what you found of note. That way I'll know that this is of some use to people and will continue to keep it available as long as possible.
