U.S. Yearbooks, 1890-1979 MyHeritage Seniors, who generally graduated the 12th grade at the age of 17 or 18, are traditionally given special treatment in these yearbooks and are most likely to have an individual portrait that was taken by a local professional photographer – often in a studio setting. Seniors can have additional information, not provided for the lower-grade members, such as their affiliation in school clubs, sports,and other activities and sometimes short biographical statements or anecdotes about or by the student. When searching a large yearbook collection like this one a thorough researcher should try to find each year in which the subject person is present and pay special attention to find them as a senior if possible.The treatment given to juniors, sophomores, and freshmen—grades 11, 10, and 9 respectively—vary in the size and quality of individual portraits and until the mid-to-late 1940s it is common to only find larger group photographs of these lower classes, most often taken on the front steps of the school. In general, yearbooks published in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s are more likely to have individual portraits for each student regardless of his or her grade level.This collection also includes a significant number of yearbooks from middle schools and junior high schools as well as some elementary schools. Additionally, schools which provided comprehensive grade levels from kindergarten up through the 12th grade are included and their yearbooks can provide photographs and information on all students attending. Some college and university yearbooks are also included.Yearbooks also provide evidence of residence in the town, city, or county where the school was located. Knowing where a person attended school is an important clue in finding other records about themselves and their families. An important exception to this notion of a student’s permanent residence exists for yearbooks from boarding schools where students often came from other locations, even far away states, to live at the school during the academic term. In these yearbooks from boarding schools the city and state where the student normally resides is regularly included. Collection 10568 MH:S500007

Eng. passed away on October 27, 2011 at the Victoria General Hospital. Erwin is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Judith, his children, grandchildren, a niece, cousins in Budapest, Hungary and Philadelphia. Erwin's funeral service was held at the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue on October 30, followed by interment at Shaarey Zedek Cemetery. The service was performed by cherished, longtime family friend Rabbi Neil Rose. Erwin was born on September 14, 1923 in Budapest, Hungary. He was predeceased by his parents Jeno and Elizabeth and his younger sister Katalin. Erwin spoke English, German, and Italian in addition to his native Hungarian. He graduated from high school summa cum laude. However as a Jew he was not allowed to attend university until after the war.

After the liberation of Europe, Erwin tragically discovered that several dozen of his relatives including his beloved 80 year old grandmother, aunts, uncles and even numerous infant cousins. were murdered in Auschwitz. These losses left him with wounds that endured to the end of his life. Following the war, Erwin enrolled at the Josef Nador Technical University of Budapest. Having lost his father during the Holocaust, Erwin became the sole breadwinner for his family at the age of 22 by tending the family insurance business late into the evenings while attending university during the day.
