This community portal looks sort of sparse -- I guess I will start it.  I am interested in discussing what to do with personal collections of documents and  photos in the long term.  I have just about decided to donate mine to the Missouri Historical Society or the MO history museum, but I have have tons of scans.  As I am writing, I am wondering about the Internet Archive.  I am quite concerned that my material remain freely  available.  [[User:Susanchambless|Susanchambless]] 18:18, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

:This is an important question, Susan. I'm a little put-off by the anonymity of the Internet Archive, so I think I'll donate most of my stuff to the Pennsylvania Archives, since most of my forbears hailed from there. I'm planning to include the material I have that's from outside of PA, though, because as I discussed with them, it makes sense to keep the family collection together. I can't imagine there's a single "right" way to do this - but that makes sense to me. [[User:Martamima|Martamima]] 16 December 2011

I have the same problem.  Many documents, photos, memorabilia, etc.  The collections go from England to California and Minnesota to Florida.  Will be following this portal to see if anyone has come up with other ideas. [[User:MikeWilliams]]
