Toledo Treasures

(Whew -- 18,000 words later, it's good to be back!)

If you have research targets in the tri-state area, specifically Toledo, Old Toledo Yearbooks is for you. In form it's a blog, but if you click on the tabs or the items in the right-hand menu called "pages," you can see six entire scanned yearbooks from various schools from 1907, 1918, 1922, 1936, 1940, and 1942. "The Scroll" yearbook for St. Ursula Academy includes handwritten notations that appear to be the jobs or engagements the young women had following graduation. Questions? You can leave a comment on the blog.

The unnamed blogger also appears to have another Toledo-related blog/site, Life with Blue Grandma, with entries from the daily diary of Mary Helen Harris of Toledo. She kept a diary from 1931 to 1972; unfortunately only five months have been posted, and none since last January.
