Ancestry Quick Tip
Check High Schools
My grandmother graduated from high school in 1910 in a small town in rural
Missouri. Her memoir claimed she took four years of German in high school,
but that seemed preposterous. I took a long shot and looked up the current
high school- it's a different location, but there's only one. I called the
office with what I thought was a silly request-records from 1910. A week
later in the mail I received a photocopy of my grandmother's entire
transcript, and also her older brother's. Check high schools and school
system central offices-you never know what records have been kept.
P.S. She was right about the four years of German.
