only one bit of advice concerning old pictures (my "pet" project) is:
Get them out of those old boxes and those magnetic "sticky" paged books,
make negatives of the old ones (as they ALL will deteriorate eventually!)
and put them in frames and GET THEM UP ON YOUR WALLS so everyone
can enjoy them! Even "copies" dipped in sepia (brown-tones) look
GREAT! So get great-grandma out of the attic and on to your fireplace
mantel. She'll love the change of scenery! and your children might
just ASK about these people!
Here's where we have space to post OLD pictures or postcards of the Shawano
are. I've divided this into the KNOWN
and the UNKNOWN. If you have old photos
that you're not sure who the people are with the black dog by the old farmhouse
(Grandma only wrote "our dog Blackie" on the photo's back), this
is the place to put them! You never know who might visit the site
and KNOW the rest of the people in the picture. If you have a scanner,
great. If not, places like OfficeMax or Staples will scan the photos
on a disk for you so you can email
them to me. Include what information you do know of the photo.
And, for people's privacy, let's put a 72 year-cap on them--any pictures
taken BEFORE 1935--UNLESS you know the individuals are deceased.
Example: Your mother's "family picture" was taken in 1950 and everyone
is deceased -- OK to post.
you help identify these people?
