My only one bit of advice concerning old pictures (my "pet" project) is:  Get them out of those old boxes and those magnetic "sticky" paged books, make negatives of the old ones (as they ALL will deteriorate eventually!) and put them in frames and GET THEM UP ON YOUR WALLS so everyone can enjoy them!  Even "copies" dipped in sepia (brown-tones) look GREAT!  So get great-grandma out of the attic and onto your fireplace mantel.  She'll love the change of scenery! and your children might just ASK about these people!

     Here's where we have space to post OLD pictures or postcards of the Shawano are.  I've divided this into the KNOWN and the UNKNOWN.  If you have old photos that you're not sure who the people are with the black dog by the old farmhouse (Grandma only wrote "our dog Blackie" on the photo's back), this is the place to put them!  You never know who might visit the site and KNOW the rest of the people in the picture.  If you have a scanner, great.  If not, places like OfficeMax or Staples will scan the photos on a disk for you so you can email them to me.  Include what information you do know of the photo.  And, for people's privacy, let's put a 72 year-cap on them--any pictures taken  BEFORE 1929--UNLESS you know the individuals are deceased.  Example: Your mother's  "family picture" was taken in 1940 and everyone is deceased -- OK to post.
