More on the family photo archive scanning:
Here are the ones for my Aunt Linda's 60th birthday party this April 1st:
Here are the ones I scanned in yesterday. The first 35 or so are from some trip
to "London Bridge, the Painted Hills, and some very scrubby land in the
South West. I'm guessing from the 1950's or 1960's. The rest are old negatives I'm guessing are from the
1920's or so as it looks like Dust Bowl era clothing:
We do have some data pictres from as far back as the 1880's. I'm trying to get as many scanned in as humanly possible, but we have three large boxs full of slides, negatives, and prints. And some of the larger medium format prints will have to wait till after tax season so I can use the scanner in her office.
After I get the scanned, then my Dad get's the fun of sorting and labeling all the images, and I get t try to do some restoration work on the images. But from the number of images I need to work through, my images will be busy for the next several months.
The one question I do need to research (or experiment with), are there recommended ways of scanning in tin types? There are tin types in the Harrison collection, but when I get to my Mom's side of the family it will be an issue.
Anyway, I hope some of you will enjoy seeing a family history develop in a very random sequence. :-)
Oh... And I will be scanning in butt loads of old post cards, including one or two that are leather, not paper. Leather post card? And not a fetish thing? How weird is that?!?!?
