Are Old Family Photos Important or Valuable?

Yes old family photos are very important. Dont you wish you could see some old pictures of your family members hundreds of years back? Well most of us would. From the 1800s are some of the most old rare and precious photographs to have, and you are very lucky to have these old photographs. We can learn a lot from our old family photographs. Like what did they do to survive, who are we related to, who were their friends what did they look like.
So we should remember photographic prints are not permanent prints they can and will start to lose detail after a few years and will deteriorate quicker as 75 years approaches.

Then there are many other things like natural disasters, fire or water damage and many other unforseen instances thaat come up that can wipe out your whole family's photographic history. Time has passed by and all memories can be wiped out.
So its very important to have these archival photogrphic restored copies of your old family photos.

"Remember Its Your History".

Time can slowly make our family history vanish without a trace.

Remember most old photos fade to white. Old tintypes and other historical photos can darken almost to solid black.
Color photos develop an orange cast when faded.
Many of these images will be lost if they are not recovered in the next few years.

If the print or the negative are not restored soon your future generations may not know what their past relatives looked like, and this is a real treasure to be able to go back many generations to see a hard copy of your family members. So if you have any photos that needs some restoring, do it now dont wait.
