Preserve Family History Photos

June 2, 2017

I’m not a gifted photographer or even close to an amateur photographer but over the years I have realized that family photos bring life to family memories. I have tried to take photos, organize them, and share them with family.

Discovering stories that give us glimpses into the lives of ancestors is one of the motivating and inspiring aspects of family history research, but finding a photo of an ancestor might be even more exhilarating. Looking into the face of someone who is a part of you can be powerful.

So you have photos of ancestors. Advice on how to care for your family history photos is everywhere. So where do you get started or get motivated to do more to preserve your family history photos?

I found the FamilySearch Blog post “Five Keys to Leaving a Visual Legacy for Future Generations” by Andrew and Rachel Niesen a helpful resource to become oriented on best photo preservation practices. Professional photographers Andrew and Rachel Niesen share why and how to preserve photos.
