Preserving Your Records

Digitizing Photographs

Please back up all of your digital data!

Photograph Storage:

  • Store photos in a controlled environment with consistent temperature and humidity
  • Replace the old photo albums with archival (acid-free) albums
  • Replace old photo frames (with cardboard or wood backing) with archival frames and mats

Note: Old frames are often wooden with simple cardboard mats or backings. These are high in wood pulp and acids which is harmful to paper and photos

Please write down the history of your family heirloom, so the next generation isn’t wondering what it is or why it’s in the family
