Blimey, Where did I put those records: Part 2

Today’s blog will list records associated with schooling of children and young adults. Keep in mind over the years educational needs have changed, terms have change, and discipline approaches have change.  I have created a list of record/document types we should look for in our ancestral search. Use the list as a guideline. You may even find or think of records that I haven’t. Add them to your list. Happy Family Researching.
