This is a very good question I'm trying to find Elementary school group pictures from 1975-1979. I know my Jr high and high school has copies of old Yearbook but I wish Elementary school did a better job keeping group class pictures/

One of the neatest things that I've seen was traveling south to Florida to visit my mother, and somewhere in either South Carolina or Georgia a school system had a small school system museum.

In my middle school, I hunted down old yearbooks and other memorabilia and we started working on a "history" of the school.

Sometimes people are too much in the "now" to think that the "now" will later be somebody's history.

That's so depressing.

If people took time to write stuff down, it should be kept forever and publicly published after a person dies.

I was recently looking for all of my old high school report cards, which I know I have somewhere and saw sometime last year. I graduated in 2005. I went to my former district's website and looked at getting a transcript -- all of that is now handled online by a 3rd party. I had to pay $6.75, but it was emailed to me within a day or two. I printed it out and will now keep it somewhere safe.

I'm sure now that I paid that fee, I'll find my folder with all of them in it!

My cousin got a copy of my grandmother's high school yearbook from 1929. What a great find. She works for the district and the yearbook was in some basement archive.

Call the school and ask.

Look for her on facebook if they don't know who she is.

Do a google search of her name and "obituary".

Go on WhitePages.com with her name and home town.
