Best was to organized scanned images
Posted by: Thomas Lerman Date: February 27, 2001 at 21:43:07

I am about to start scanning in things that I am just starting to get. Before doing so, I would like to get experienced opinions on how to organize the images. Obviously, I will have photos, but I will also be scanning in birth/marriage/death certificates, census sheets, immigration/naturalization records, social security applications, and anything else I can get my hands on. Obviously, some things (especially photos) can span across surnames. My question is: what the best method or organizing the images . . . both directory and file name??? I am using PAF5 on a Windows environment. You help is greatly appreciated.
