And another thing

I suggested a way of handling personal photos the other day.

Here's some more advice. Print the photos and write on the back of them. Tell people that don't know, who the photos contain and where and when it was taken.

This doesn't just benefit those who will be sorting through your effects in terms of deciding whether that baby the picture is a girl or a boy, or exactly where a little girl was sitting when her picture was taken. It helps you to remember after a few years have passed. You will forget. Not for all pictures, but for most you will forget exactly who, where and when.
