Happy new year! We've added several thousand names to the site and nearly doubled the number of schools whose students are available to research. Out of the nearly 14,000 names signed in the album, close to 9,000 are now up on the site and ready for you. We hope to have all of the names available soon.

Before we add a school to the site, we like to do some background research and see if we can determine the gender of the students who signed the album, and try to narrow down the age range of the students who attended that school. This helps to give you more narrow parameters so your search for the student who signed a name can be more focused. The schools added this time are listed below, along with the gender of the students and their age range in 1941.

School #3: boys ages 7 to 15
School #4a: girls ages 7 to 12 
School #7b: girls ages 9 to 14
School #8a: girls ages 7 to 13

School #9a: girls ages 9 to 12
