> Hello Ann--You have an interesting trove of Lansingburgh history! My mother lived there during the first two decades of the 20th century and graduated from Lansingburgh High School--I don't know the exact year but it may be 1920 or 1921. Would you mind checking the yearbooks?--If you find my mother (Marion Bode) in any of them, I'd be interested in having them--will pay a reasonable price. Thank you!--Mary
