My father, like many people, is a transplant. He was born in the small mining village of Bellaire, Ohio and he hadn’t been back to visit in well over 20 years. This past summer he decided to take a few weeks to go back, visit and catch them up on what he has been up to since the last time he visited in the 80s. Much of our Ohio family is older and not computer literate so they haven’t been kept up to date with family photos, news and stories via email and Facebook. So much family history has happened to our clan since the last time he visited, he decided he wanted to take a bunch of photos to show everyone my sister and I growing up and all that went along with it.
There was one big problem: how do you choose which photos to take? How do you summarize 20 years of family history into a handful of photos? Even if you can narrow it down, what is the best way to transport all of those photos? Luckily, he has a son that works for a company that scans photos and had the perfect solution.
