If you are like me, I often look back and old photographs and wonder – now, who was that in the red hat that I was talking to a 1999 Memorial Day picnic?!

I suggest using a soft pencil and writing on the back of the old photos to capture that information.  For digital photos – use the tags and description box to write down who is the photo and where it was taken.

More tips from the National Archives here.

Your grandkids will thank you!
