A Publication of Lyons High School


When family researchers discover their ancestors' occupations, they wonder what local businesses were in existence for a particular year. The usual sources consulted in seeking out information about extant businesses are old newspapers, gazetteers, and phone books. Often forgotten are the publications of local fraternal organizations, churches, and especially high school yearbooks and other school publications. The ads below came from "The Senior," a publication of the students of Lyons High School. A copy of the 1921 classbook is on file at the Office of the County Historian, Lyons, N.Y.
