We Need a Yearbook Website

I was reading the newspaper a couple of weeks ago when I saw a photo and an article that looked very familiar. The woman in the picture looked like a girl I went to high school with 20- some years ago. However, I could not be sure. After all, she was married. Her name was different. She was older. Her hair was different. And besides all that, the article said that she lived in a town that was nowhere near my high school. What would she be doing there?

I Googled her. I looked on Facebook and MySpace. I tried everything I could to find out if this mystery woman was in fact my high school friend. I spent a lot of time reminiscing. I remembered classes we had taken together. I thought about the crush I had on her best friend. One thing led to another and I went to the basement for the yearbook.

That is when it struck me. What we need is a website with yearbooks on it. It would be a huge undertaking, but it would be very convenient if we could go to one place to find High School and College yearbook photos and information on celebrities and civilians. Yearbooks could be sorted by year, by state and by region. Photos could also be made available alphabetically.

I know that it does not seem important, but this would have saved me a lot of time as I was looking for information on my friend.
