[attachment=278:attachment]I Forgot all about these pics. My mother gave them to me a few years ago when she cleaned out my grandparents home after my grandpa passed. They were her grandmothers who was from Holland. I just scanned a bunch but have more to go. Only a few are dated or have any info on them,but I do recognize my Great Gram in a lot of them.So Happy to have these now i,m stuck with that great question of (now what?) So many choices and ideas . Would love your thoughts. check them out in my gallery under Old Photos album

That is a wonderful picture. You're going to have fun with these. Are you going to paper scrap or digital?

For pictures like that, that I have on paper, I've decided I will mount them using photo corners, only. I won't ruin the pics or any writing that may be on the back.

Hope you're going to share with us what you come up with. Have fun!!!

great find, and I agree, don't ruin them, digital is a great way to go with scanning both front and back and then either framing the originals or putting them in protective sleeves in you safe deposit box!

there are so many sets here, too, that are perfect for heritage photos! TFS

Those old photos are such treasures to have. What a gift.

I agree with the others. Use them to make some digital heritage pages. It's nice to know who they are but you can include your wondering in a short journal note, make guesses or other comments about the feelings the photos invoke.
