Ancestry updates Canada, Selected School Yearbooks, 1908-2010

Quebec is the big beneficiary in this update to Canada, Selected School Yearbooks, 1908-2010 on Ancestry. It's a collection originally reported here on 21 July 2015

Provinces in the database, with number of entries, and previous in parentheses, are: British Columbia 74,556 (73,568), Alberta  108,565 (106,195); Saskatchewan 40,736 (32,011); Manitoba 13,158 (11,713); Ontario  1,157,348 (941,128); Quebec 1,637,235 (182,004); New Brunswick 3,036 (2,816); Nova Scotia 7,153 (5,706). There are no entries for the other provinces.

For Quebec the major yearbook additions are for Selywn House School in Montreal which has every yearbook from 1928 to 1988 and King's Hall in Crompton has issues from 1940 to 1972.

As before, be aware the indexing used error-prone OCR technology.
