Lifespan of a scrapbook.
Because of the wide variety of materials used for scrapbooks and the common use of newspaper clippings and other items, the aging of a scrapbook is all over the map. Still, you can count on a few rules. Most modern scrapbooking after 1990 used archival materials. Although this doesn’t guarantee eternal life to the photos inside, these scrapbooks properly stored will probably last 30-50 years. Scrapbooks from WWII until the 1990’s usually gas chemicals that cause fading and discoloration of photographs. The faster you have them digitized, the better. Older scrapbooks from WWII and back are almost always extremely delicate. That paper usually has surpassed it’s predicted 75 year lifespan and you should consider yourself lucky to have them intact. We highly recommend meeting with an expert in older, ancestry scrapbooks and make a plan for immediate digitization of these treasures.
