To find photos from specific yearbooks on Classmates.com, the graduate first chooses the state, city and name of the high school. At that point, the website visitor must register on Classmates.com in order to access the yearbooks at no charge. Prior to registering, though, the graduate can preview the online yearbooks to make sure that the website has the yearbook in which he is interested. Classmates.com sells reprints of the yearbooks in hard and soft cover versions.
E-Yearbook.com has its college yearbooks sorted by state and then university name. To access any of its online yearbooks, the graduate must purchase a membership, priced in September 2015 at either $19.95 per year or $4.95 per month with a two-month minimum. The member receives access to millions of yearbook photos, and the company remits 20 percent of the membership fees to the schools in their yearbook digitization program. Also, if the site visitor can't find a specific yearbook, he can request E-Yearbooks.com to look for it.
Customers of either site can utilize the digital yearbooks to search for old classmates and research their ancestry. Besides access to individual portraits, customers can see all of the photos in their yearbook including club and team group pictures, as well as teachers' and administrators' photos.
