Old Family Pictures

So I got my hands on the box of old photographs my grandma had and am now scanning old family pictures so everyone in the family can share them. I love all these old pictures and can hardly wait to have them all scanned, organized, online and in my albums.

Plenty of these old pictures have people I don't know mixed in with the ones I do so there are lots of blanks that I'm hoping my mom and her siblings can fill in. I'm obsessed with the idea of having a good record of our history and our lives. Right around the end of last year I put together a Shutterfly site to preserve and share family photos. For the most part all of the family has joined and is enjoying the site. I have found that most of the people who actually have the old photos are the ones who don't really know how to upload them to the site. With time I'm hoping to make the rounds and help each one get their pictures up too.

It's a fun project and I feel a good use of this time when I'm not working outside of the home. I have a feeling that I'll be able to work here soon but we can talk more about that later. Today is all about the scanning so I'm going to get back to it.

What are you up to today?

  1. What a great way to preserve your family's heritage. I have some of those 'who is this?' pics, too. I bet you will really enjoy this project! I think it will take quite a while to get everyone's pics done, but how fun!

    Today I shopped, watched storm, and quake coverage, and started dismantling the bathroom.
