Last weekend, Husband and I straightened up the main storage room in the basement. We threw out lots of stuff and organized what remained. Finally, all our pictures, slides, and family documents are in one closet. Now comes a bigger problem: what will we do with them.
The photos span from the late 19th century to the present. I am the person from both sides of my family who bothered with collecting the photos and family documents. Husband has lots of family photos and documents, too. My father was an avid photographer when I was a child, and his pictures are in the form of slides.
While it all is in one place, it is all jumbled in plastic, two gallon bags and cardboard boxes. Some are in albums that need to be sorted through. I want to end up with as much as possible in digital form. I don’t know what to keep in the original form.
What course of action would Baboons recommend? Have any of you dealt with this sort of problem? How do you store your beloved things from the past?
