21st Century Organised Family Historian – Week 9 – Organize Heritage Photos

Continuing the weekly thread organised by Michelle at The Turning of Generations

About 4 years ago I sorted through a series of boxes in the loft space of all the photographs we have. The photograph collection was made up of – 

  • All my photographs prior to marriage
  • All my husband’s photos prior to marriage
  • All our photographs taken since marriage
All my genealogical photos were already sorted and housed separately. We also had a collection of photograph albums that held specific holidays. The rest of the photographs were still in the paper envelope and outer bag that you collect from the photograph store.

All the envelopes were then dated and a note jotted on the outside indicating what there represented. An example – 1988 Royal Naval HMS Raleigh.

Having done this earlier work, it now means that we can scan and make a digital archive as much of the dating has been done.
