Will, A word of caution. A few years ago I was tasked with collating and storing all company records which, because of the nature of the business, had to be kept for a minimum of 80 years.
During this work I had a long meeting with a Kodak rep. The upshot of which was that he couldn't guarantee that digital photographs of the files could be kept for such a period.
