Save Your Photos

A daguerreotype of John Hinkle. Have you inherited a box of family photographs? Have you cleaned out a closet or your attic and found a few photo albums? Are you the family archivist? If so, September is the month you’ve been waiting for. It’s Save Your Photos Month, a whole month dedicated to the care and preservation of your family photographs.

The PhotoBlog will be celebrating the month with a series of posts about various types of photographs and photographic images, methods of dating and identifying photographs, and tips and tricks for preserving your family’s photographic legacy. We’ll even include resources found both online and in the Research Center here at LancasterHistory.

The Photo Managers (formerly the Association of Personal Photo Organizers) promote Save Your Photos Month each September with various outreach events. For more information, check their website:
