Preserve Your Family History by Digitally Archiving Old Documents

Hand written recipe cards, old journals, immigration documents, awards, old newspaper clippings . . . these are all things that can be digitally preserved.

Whether you use them for custom printed scrapbook paper, put on a CD with pictures and have audio clips of the words being read, or used as parts of a larger graphic collage on a family web site. This is also a nice idea if there are numerous people in the family who would like to enjoy these bits of history, as there is typically only one copy of such documents floating around. I’d love to see some individual samples if anyone out there has any posted online.
