Archiving and Scanning
Will Your Memories Stand the Test of Time?
The answer to that question is dependent on what you decide to do with your photos and memorabilia today. How will you decide to store and archive your photos, movies, slides and keepsakes? How will you decide to preserve the memories of your childhood, school days, vacations, weddings, ancestors? Will you and future generations ever get to see and enjoy these images? Our hope is that you decide to do something to protect your precious family legacy. This will bring you peace of mind knowing that your precious family memories are protected for generations to come.
What should you Digitize?
Think beyond just photo scanning to all of the other items in your life that you would like to preserve and share with others. Once your items are digitized, their lifespan is substantially increased and if you follow our backup suggestions, they are protected from environmental damage like fires or flooding.
To get your thoughts going, here are just a few of the items besides photos that we have digitized over the years:
Recipes in Grandma’s handwriting with a “pinch of this” and a “pinch of that”, birth, baptism, and wedding certificates, Ancestry documents and deeds, children’s artwork and adult artwork, letters, postcards, newspaper articles, certificates, scrapbook pages, album pages, awards.
