This is me with great grandparents.

This is great grandma(above) as a kid.


And these are her great grandparents.



I've got 30-40 more pics about as old,but they are not hosted anywhere.
I want to get them touched up and restored,but that will a big project,and have to learn the touch up techniques.

I’d scan them onto the computer first: (1) they won’t deteriorate any more (2) it’s easy to touch up pics with software (3) once they are touched up you can have them printed in B&W on a good photo printer or just keep them in electronic format.

They have already been digitized,couldn't scan them,they are mounted in a couple of albums that would have been destroyed if I attempted to remove the pics.
I had to just take pictures of then with my DSLR,not ideal but the best I could do .
I don't own the pics ,they are with another branch of the family,they let me borrow them.

Something of a family shot. Mine is mostly on the right in the pic. I'm being held by my Mom with my Aunt on the left and cousin on the right. My uncle behind me and cousin, Grandma, and my Dad to the left of him. My Granddad is way over to the left of the pic in the cap :)

My mum in England during WWII. She's on left. She didn't even like riding on the back of a motorcycle and this is as close as she got.
