Going through old photos is just one of the many things that have kept me occupied over the last couple of weeks. I sorted through hundreds of photos and winnowed out the duplicates, some not so great shots, some with people I didn't know, and I still have near a hundred photos to send in for scanning. Vicki recommended ScanCafe and that's where I'm sending my cherished photos. I'll let you know how it goes.
Going through the large box of photos I had was an emotional experience. I found photos I didn't know existed, letters and cards from my childhood, and memories my mother had tucked into the pages of scrapbooks. Mom has been gone for 25 years and I have not thoroughly gone through this box of treasures she left for me. It will be wonderful to have the photos ready to share with other family members and kept for the generations to come. But, holy cow, wasa it a task.
