Deep in the back of big walk-in bedroom closet are three (maybe four) large Rubbermaid storage tubs filled with my family’s photo archive; dating back over 100 years. Old sepia-toned and yellowing prints, envelopes of negatives, newspaper clippings, letters, and more. After my parents passed, my siblings concurred that I would be the best steward of this precious archive by nature of my profession and also married to photographer.
Organizing the “stuff” can be a challenge. What do I keep? What can be tossed? How do I scan it? How should I organize it, chronologically?
Since my niece has been doing a bang-up job working on the genealogy including images on our Ancestry account aids her research. (Recently, a distant relative on my mother’s side reach out to me and after sharing a picture of my grandfather we discovered that his grandfather was my great uncle.)
