U3AC Photo Forum 2018-19 16: Managing a Legacy Photo Archive

On Friday Sue Fifer treated the Forum to the lively story of how she dealt with the 11,000 slides (mounted transparencies) left by her late husband.  Here are her rules.  1. Don’t put it off.  2. Do it alone.  3.  Do it a bit at a time, but over a limited period.  4. Keep the projector or whatever you are using set up.   5. Be ruthless.  6. Don’t keep multiple copies of the same thing.  7. Only keep unusual pictures of famous places.  8. Keep significant personal and family pictures.  9.  Throw out the rest.  And 11,000 became 460, a keep rate of 4%.  Ruthless indeed.
