How to Organize Old Family Photos

I have inherited hundreds of photos from both sets of grandparents, my own parents, and other relatives. Most of these are very meaningful to me and I want to keep them. However, decades ago they didn’t have the archival quality storage that we have today. So most of these pictures are in the older style albums that didn’t protect them, or they are in boxes. Some are labeled; some are not.

The important thing is to organize and preserve these photos. I don’t want them to fade any more than they already have. I also want to organize them so I can find various people or events easily without going through a pile of unlabeled pictures. The following posts give some excellent ideas on just exactly how to do that.
