ScanMyPhotos customer Joyce Harrington has an impressive photo collection that spans three centuries and about seven generations. She has the latest and greatest Mac, but even her brand new computer is at its capacity trying to store Joyce’s 25,000 photos. Yep, we said 25,000!
When asked if she had one special photo in her enormous collection, she replied, “They’re all special. All of them. They’re photos of my family from all over. Some of the pictures are very old. The oldest one is from the 1800s.”
The photo from the 1800s? It’s of Joyce’s great, great, great grandmother (pictured right), who is actually a decedent from the Mayflower. Talk about a picture with a ton of history!
“I’ve been immersed in scanning all my old photos for three years. I’m semi-retired and obsessed with the project. It’s important to get our history together and make the photos available to the family…the kids may not appreciate it now, but one day they might.”
