Historical Society Digitizes Yearbooks:  Looking for Missing Volumes

Laurel, MD… Are you looking for high school or elementary school friends?  Many of the yearbooks from Laurel High, Laurel Junior High, Pallotti and other local schools can now be viewed both in hard cover and digitally at the Laurel  Museum, 817 Main Street, Laurel, MD.  Did you attend Laurel High or other local schools in the 1930’s or after 1994? The Laurel Historical Society would like to borrow your yearbook.

Digitization of the Society’s yearbooks was made possible through the Yearbook Project of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections at no cost to the Society. The books were scanned in color and will shortly be available on the historical society’s research computer in the Brennan library in the near future. The Yearbook Project is willing to digitize additional books, and the LHS is asking the community for help in filling in the gaps in its collection. If owners do not wish to donate their copy to the museum collection, yearbooks can be loaned to the Society and then returned in the same condition after they are digitized.  Here is a list of the missing volumes:
Laurel High School:  Any before 1927 except 1924; 1928;1929; 1931 to 1943; 1949; 1971;1979;1982;1984;1989 and 1994 to present day.
Laurel Junior High:  Any before 1966; 1968; 1981.
Eisenhower Middle School:  1983 to present day.
Martin Luther King:  1991 to present day.
Laurel Elementary School: Any except 1964.
Pallotti High School:  Any before 1983; 1990 to present day.
St. Mary’s: Any year
St. Mildred’s Academy:  Any except 1940 & 1949.

"We've found the yearbooks on display to be one of the most popular parts of our current exhibit 'Lost and Found Laurel' stated LHS Executive Director Lindsey Baker. "Visitors love to spend time looking through them."

To set up an appointment to research current yearbooks or to donate or loan a yearbook email:  director@laurelhistoricalsociety.org or call 301-725-7975.

The Laurel Museum is open Wednesday and Friday 10:00am-2:00pm and Sunday 1:00-4:00pm. The John Brennan Research library is available by appointment. The current exhibit:  “Lost & Found Laurel” runs through December 21. For more information visit www.laurelhistoricalsociety.org

Wikipedia September at the Laurel Historical Society

Laurel, MD..  Can you trust information on Wikipedia? Should you?  Would you like to be a Wikipedia Editor?  The Laurel Historical Society and Wikimedia DC are presenting two days of Wikipedia programs that answer these questions.  September 11 the LHS provides a chance to learn more about this informational powerhouse.  September 21 it offers hands-on training to become part of this locally important yet international community and the opportunity to contribute new information on Laurel to the site. 
Thursday, September 11 at 7:00 p.m. presenters from Wikimedia DC and the LHS will explore resources to demonstrate Wikipedia techniques. They will explore what it is, how it works, how to use it effectively, how not to use it, and why it makes sense for a historical society to engage with Wikipedia. Attendees will learn how they can be part of the community that creates, verifies, and edits the local history information that appears on Wikimedia. Newly digitized issues of the Laurel Leader as research examples for local history will also be revealed. 
According to LHS Executive Director Lindsey Baker, “Wikipedia is a great place to start research, but sometimes people hesitate to use it as they are unsure of whether they can trust the information. We believe through this programming we can help dispel the myths and reveal just how useful a resource like Wikipedia can be for researchers and organizations like the Historical Society. “
FREE.  Laurel Pool Room at 9th & Main Streets.  The Laurel Museum, currently featuring “Lost & Found Laurel,” will be open from 6:00-7:00p.m. prior to the program.
Sunday, September 21 from 10:15a.m-4:00 p.m. the LHS and Wikimedia DC will hold the second day-long Laurel History Edit-A-Thon. At the all-day event participants will be editing and updating Wikipedia, using their personal expertise and the LHS’ resources. An exciting addition to the LHS Collection, the full set of Laurel Leaders now at the LHS will be incorporated into the day’s program in order to further expand the public’s knowledge of Laurel.  Training is provided for novice editors by Wikipedia editors, and experienced editors are also welcome. Participants will receive a behind the scenes tour of the Laurel Research Library and collections.  FREE.  Lunch is provided.  Participants should bring their own laptop and be prepared to stay for the whole day.
The Edit-a-Thon will be held at the Laurel Historical Society:  817 Main Street, Laurel Registration isn't required but signups are preferred. People can sign up at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/DC/Laurel_Historical_Society_2 or email info@LaurelHistoricalSociety.org. For more information contact 301-725-7975.
The Laurel Edit-a-Thon is sponsored by Wikimedia DC, the regional outreach organization for Wikipedia and the other projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, whose mission is to promote participation on Wikimedia projects in the Washington, DC area and throughout the United States. Wikimedia is a global movement whose mission is to bring free educational content to the world.

How do You See Your home town?  How do you remember it? Lost & Found Laurel, a new exhibit that takes visitors on a trip down memory lane opens February 9, 2014 at the Laurel Museum. Focusing on the 1960s through the present, the exhibit explores the shops, schools, restaurants, activities and celebrations that created a fondly remembered community.  One section:  “The Good Old Days…?” focuses on racial tensions, as a reminder that not all memories were good ones.
