I like investigating old yearbooks and death certificates, as well as doing genealogy myself. I am under the belief that we die twice- once when our physical body passes, and again when our name is said for the last time. I want to make sure that nobody ever truly "dies" - one photo at a time.
I hope that my work helps somebody, somewhere, in their journey to knowing their family or friends. Please feel free to let me know if it does, or if you have any photo requests from historical yearbooks in North Carolina.
I give blanket permission for all yearbook-style photos to be used for academic, genealogical, and historical research. All yearbook-style photos are cited as such, including the yearbook name, year, and institution. All yearbook images are available for free to the public and come from the associated section of digitalnc.org.
My main familial surnames include the following:
North Carolina - Ivey, Kinlaw, Shaw, Britt
Georgia - Dozier, Malcom, Haukland, Preston
Maryland - Eckman, Kuhlman, Bennett, Schreiber, Sears
