Home Movie and Family Photo Archive

depository for unwanted family movies and photos
  [vote for,

This non-profit foundation would accept donations of family photographs and home movies when they are no longer needed or wanted in the family. The idea would be to not let this important anthropological resource go into the garbage. Eventually, movies and photos would be digitized and organized so that people doing research could access them. The museum/archive would be funded by ... the government.

Already digitized, but not funded by the government. [Worldgineer, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       There's a wacky Seattle-based group/family that buys such photos at yard sales and such, and then composes songs to go with slideshows of the photos. Saw them on TV last year, they're hilarious. See link.

       I remember going through a couple of family albums in a second hand shop upstate somewhere, thinking that at least the pudgy children pictured must still be alive, and certainly their descendents, and wondering what kind of mechanism could reunite them with the albums. I also considered passing it off as my own family.
