We will be going to visit her to see if she can help us with his family information and with the photos that we have inherited. I started working last Friday to scan the photos and newspaper clippings that were marked with her name.
I have scanned them, backed them up to Flickr, backed them up to an external USB hard drive, placed them in archival safe photo envelopes and put those in a clean envelope to give to her. Feeling comfortable with my plan, I posted then to my tree at Ancestry.com and then and only then, did I erase the scans from my laptop's hard drive.
I put a fluorescent dot on the outside of the envelope to indicate to myself that these photos are scanned and ready to be given to her for her children and grandchildren.
