I know there is all this privacy stuff these days, BUT would the Dayton Library have enrollment records of students back in the mid 60's that are available? I need to find out what high school a person attended back arouond 1966-67.

They might if they have an archives or Dayton History Room, but the information would likely come from a yearbook. I don't think that's the type of information that most libraries keep. I would think that a lot of schools would not even keep that information from that far back. Most of it is paper and they would have discarded it. Some, but not all though. I'd call the school or library for a yearbook. Also try to see if there is an alum group.

Kind of hard to contact the school when that's what I'm trying to find out. Can't find them in any school I thought they might have gone to. Looked through many yearbooks.

Terry-

I just called the library, and they said that there isn't a comprehensive list of historical student records like that. They said the yearbooks would be the best they have, at this point. Sorry I can't be more help; I thought there might be something like that, too.

Yes, I know you're looking for the school. :) You're obviously going to have to call the schools that are a possibility. There is no large list of people in general and schools they attended. It's just leg work and asking around.

Thanks guys, I tried calling the schools I thought they might have attended BUT you can't find out a damn thing anymore because of the damn privacy issues. They wouldn't even tell me if they went there 50 years ago.
Would you believe I tried to get family contact info from a funeral home after I discovered an old friends obit. I wanted to contact the family but they wouldn't tell me how to contact them for privacy reasons.

tlturbo,

An idea on the obituary information:

Write a letter saying at least some what you want to say to the family, but don't seal it in an envelope. Send it to the funeral home with a request that they forward it. Might include an envelope with a stamp and your return address on it.

I left my name and contact info with the funeral home and they said they would pass it on to the family.

tlturbo-

You didn't say when your friend passed away, but many funeral homes now offer a page on their website for leaving messages of condolence to the family of the deceased. When a friend of mine passed away last year, his condolence page remained on the website for several months. This may not be of any help in this case, but in the future the condolence page could be used in similar situations to contact the family or leave messages without having to rely on the funeral home to actively get involved.

Calhoun. Yes, but they passed over 5 years ago and the Funeral Home wants you to PAY to reactivate the Guest Book. They SAID they would pass my info on to the family but not holding my breath.
