I've spent the last few hours cleaning out documents and keep stumbling across photos of "non-family family" - those lovely people that you consider related but actually aren't. I've been struggling for a long time with how to store these photos and related documents.
For now, I use two methods. I have newer photos in scrapbooks. The conservator part of my brain hates doing that (scrapbook improperly can ruin photos for the long term), but they do display much better. And since I'm awful with organizing otherwise... I do try to store the older photos properly, but I'm fast running out of space.
In the long run, I'm not sure how to keep them. Will I want them in 20 years? How do you handle this situation?
