Your Heritage Photo - Getting Started
Your Heritage Photos
Many of us have a box of old photos sitting in an attic or closet. Inside that box are photos of our grandparents, great-grandparents or other extended family members. For some of us, those are the only memories we have of our ancestors who are no longer with us. The photos in those boxes are fading as rapidly as our memories, yet there they sit. Why? Because we don't know what to do with them.
If you are the owner of one or more of those boxes and you have a desire to honor your ancestors and preserve their memories, you've come to the right place. During this blog series we will be providing step-by-step instructions on organizing, preserving and sharing your Heritage Photos.
Some of you may be tempted to simply take that box of photos, scan them and use one of the many online photo book creators to complete the project. If you're trying to get the project checked off your list, go for it. But if you are trying to preserve these memories for future generations, we have a better plan. If you follow the plan, the end result will be organized, archivally stored photos and a beautiful Heritage Photo Album that will become a family heirloom.
Are you in? Let's get started!
