Family Journals, Scrap Books, Diaries, Photos

These are just some of the types of historical/genealogical documents that can benefit from digital preservation.



  • View without causing irreversible damage
  • Digital backup in case of loss or theft
  • Send copies to family and friends
  • Searchable text (see below)
The example on the right shows an old family history book that has been scanned and indexed using optical character recognition (OCR). The PDF stores the indexed text behind the scanned images so that you see the original document, but can search and copy words like a word document.
