I really want to find someone who can PROFESSIONALLY restore my Mom's albums.

Some go back to the 1940s. The ones I grew up with are sadly starting to dry out and the paper pages are getting really brittle. I HAVE to save them because they have Mom's writing on them under each photo. The covers are harder cardboard and in good shape. I'd like to find someone who could Professionally cut each page, thoroughly laminate each one and create a new binder album, using the original covers. Even before that is done, it will take me weeks to find misplaced photos and get them on the right pages. Many had those little white corner things that held the photos. Many popped off from the glue simply drying out. In her later years, my Mom also removed many photos to make copies and send to people but she did not replace many of them. I found many in a box.

Sad thing is.....I'm sure if I DO find restoration for the albums, it will be for just me. I mean..NOBODY looks at photo albums anymore. My boys MIGHT glance from time to time but aside from that. Most of the people who were in the albums have passed away or faded away to who know where.

  Anyone else wonder if photo documentation has actually REGRESSED with technology?
