Larry, I too worry about the loss of important information as we move into digital storage and transmission. Over the 150+ years we have had photographs, we've evolved a system for keeping them. even if it's only in a shoebox or a desk drawer. And the way we documented the photo was, if we remembered, to write on the back of the print or on the envelope that the prints came back from the processor in.
When an old homestead is cleaned out, the boxes of letters and cards and photos usually go to the designated family historian. In the future, will we be distributing harddrives or idisks?

Thanks, C.J. Being aware of a problem is only the first step. Now, what do we do about it?
