Open Scrapbook Surgery…

Well, it seems the only way that I will be able to scan in all of the identified photographs in the Wilhoyte Scrapbook is to take it apart. Really, this makes me sad as I hate so much to feel as if I am destroying a piece of history.

In my head, I am trying to cheer myself up by reminding myself that it is being taken apart for the sake of saving it and sharing it with those of you who are hunting for these ancestors… hunting for your history.

What good are the things I buy and if they can not be shared and accessible by those of us who desperately seek our roots? The good outweighs the evil so later toady, ever so careful, the book will be unbound.
