My uncle sent me a huge box of vintage family photos he's been holding on to. This is just a small sampling of what I received:

I so treasure these family photos.

My uncle also sent me binders of our family tree dating as far back as the 1200's. He spent countless days doing all of the research and I so thank him for it. I hope I can pick up where he left off. My heritage has always fascinated me and seeing these family photos makes it all the more real and tangible.

I am definitely going to scan {and scrap!} some of my favorites this summer but does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do with these delicate originals? 

I am guessing these leather-bound photo albums are about a century old. I squealed with joy when I took these out of the box! And yes, there are framed photos inside!

This is a photo of my maternal grandfather when he was a boy. 

Love it.
