52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks; Week 35

Week 35: Back to School
School has already started in many locations! Have you found your ancestor in any school records — maybe a yearbook or a school census? Do you have a teacher in your family tree?

I have gone through some of our family photos and found some school related items.

One of my favourite finds has been this little certificate from when my Grandmother went to Cooking school.

I also have one of my Dad’s Brother’s old school reports and a photo from a different year.

My Sister, Brother and myself are all in this photo, and a coin that i received when in school for the 1988 Bicentenary. An old certificate and graduating Grade 6.

Angel a couple of years ago and her school folder, which is very full of school photos and school memories.

My Dad’s Uncle Cliff was a School Teacher, he went onto become a Screenwriter and Author. His wife Judith was also a Teacher as is/was one or two of their daughters. I am sure that if I looked hard enough I would find other Teachers in the family.
