Newark Schools Yearbook Inventory

Newark School Yearbooks owned by the CFCNJIC

The CFCNJIC only recently began to collect yearbooks so our collection of yearbooks is small. If you do not see the yearbook you want here, we recommend contacting schools directly. A directory of contact information for all Newark schools still in existence is here. For schools with an alumni association (especially Weequahic and Barringer), it may be best to contact them directly. You can also try contacting the Newark Public Schools Archives.

Many Newark School yearbooks are also available for a fee via Ancestry.com (yearbooks are here, available for use at the libary) and Classmates.com.

Another place to check for yearbooks is the New Jersey Historical Society.

For reference questions, research services, and to order copies, call the New Jersey Information Center at (973) 733-7775 or email njreference@npl.org. For more information about all holdings click here.

We accept donations of Newark school yearbooks. Please contact the New Jersey Information Center at (973) 733-7775 or email njreference@npl.org for more information.
