5 ways to store your Family History photos

  1. Digital file storage: One option is to store your photos electronically on a hard drive, cloud storage service, or photo-sharing website. This allows you to easily access and share your photos, but it’s important to make sure you have a backup in case of data loss.
  2. Physical photo albums: Creating physical photo albums is a classic way to store and view your photos. You can purchase albums with acid-free pages to help preserve your photos.
  3. Photo boxes: Another option is to store your photos in archival-quality photo boxes. These boxes are made of acid-free materials and are designed to protect your photos from light, moisture, and other elements.
  4. Picture frames: Displaying your photos in picture frames is a great way to bring your family history to life and make it a part of your home decor. Just be sure to use acid-free matting and UV-protective glass to help preserve your photos.
  5. Digital picture frames: Digital picture frames allow you to display a slideshow of your photos electronically. This can be a convenient way to view your photos, but be sure to regularly back up your digital files to prevent data loss.

Top 10 tips for Family History Research

  1. Start with what you know: Make a list of everything you already know about your family. This will help you focus your research and identify gaps in your knowledge.
  2. Gather documents: Look for documents such as birth, marriage, and death certificates, census records, and military records. These can provide important information about your ancestors.
  3. Use online resources: There are many online resources available for family history research, including ancestry websites, digitized historical records, and online databases.
  4. Join a genealogy group: Consider joining a genealogy group or society in your area. These groups can provide support, resources, and expert advice.
  5. Take advantage of free resources: Many libraries and archives offer free access to their collections for genealogy research. Take advantage of these resources to save money.
  6. Don’t be afraid to ask for help: If you are having trouble finding information or understanding a document, don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are many genealogy experts and enthusiasts who would be happy to assist you.
  7. Be organized: Keep track of your research and the sources you use. This will help you avoid duplicating efforts and make it easier to share your findings with others.
  8. Use multiple sources: Don’t rely on just one source of information. Use multiple sources to confirm or disprove information and to get a more complete picture of your ancestors.
  9. Keep an open mind: Your ancestors may not have lived the perfect lives you imagined. Be prepared for the possibility that you may find information that is unexpected or difficult to accept.
  10. Have fun: Genealogy can be a rewarding and enjoyable hobby. Don’t get too caught up in the details and remember to have fun with your research.
