Hazleton 1948 High School Yearbook


I have some more yearbooks to get online so I need some volunteers. If you have some time and want to transcribe the names, etc. on the pages of this yearbook to make it easier for the search engines to pick up, feel free to Click Here to Contact Me and I can help you get started and also keep track of who is transcribing each book so we don't duplicate the work. This project can only grow with everyone's help. If I take the time to transcribe this info, then I have to put off working on adding more items. I would rather get as much online as possible where researchers at least can find it. It may take a little bit of work but at least if it is online it is now available. Even if you don't find anything here to help you now, it may be in the next addition I make to the site, so by helping with this project, you may actually be helping me to add something of interest to you in the future.

PLEASE NOTE: A Special "THANK YOU!" goes out to Michael Prokop for helping transcribe the names on this page. Without his work they may never have gotten transcribed.
