  • Uncomplicated Photo Organisation

    Posted by Ross Hansen on 11th Jan 2021

    Like many family historians, I've put off sorting my thousands of photos accumulated over a lifetime. This has become more complex with the advent of digital photos. This little book, with its clear steps, helpful illustrations and plenty of simple options has motivated me to at last make a start. With this guide, I'm progressing well. While it indicates on the cover it's for organising printed photos, it has a chapter for digital photos as well. I love this book and am referring to it often as I sort.
