What to do with all this "stuff" ......

As I mentioned earlier, my mom was an avid genealogist. In the course of her research she collected lots and LOTS of material. That's the "up" side. But (and this is a definite "down" side) she was working at a time when no one had computers to help organize and publish things. So I inherited all of my mom's files. Boxes and boxes of files. And loose papers. And hand-written notes from people. And photos. And old photostats. Etc.......

I gave most of the Etchison materials to the Indiana State Library. Those things are available for anyone to see there. But what should I do with everything else? And then there are my own materials that I've collected.

Is it appropriate to post things here on this blog (such as old will transcripts)? Should I start a web site where those things could be "stored", then refer to blog readers there? I'm sure there are lots of options that I haven't even thought of.

Let me know what's worked for you or what you've seen on other blogs. And thanks for your help.
