I think the compromise is to scan them if I'm not going to keep the physical volumes, and stash the files where the family can grab them if they want. I always check eBay to see if someone is in search of this stuff.

Every year on March 17 there are "sales" in the genealogy marketplace, and this year I took advantage of one with a two weeks free trial followed by low monthly fees until I cancel. This is to upload some stuff and make it available—and my goodness, but this is quite a rabbit hole to descend! I've loaded the DNA results from one site into another (less expensive than Ancestry and more prominent in Europe, where most if not all of the family came from anyway). I did also pay $20 extra to the original place where I did the test to find out about an "Archaic" human ancestry.

I've done some of the dusting, with more to do. In the process I stumbled across the wire strippers I misplaced (near the speaker wires I was working on in the den ages ago - must finish that project.)

The bread machine is set up to make a batch of dinner rolls as comfort food - these next few days are breezy and cool and there's nothing like carbs to make you feel warmer. I mostly use them to make small slider-like sandwiches. (My favorite being breakfast sausage patties in a roll.) I'll share a few with the neighbors so I don't eat them all myself.
