[This doesn't exactly fit here...]

I was wondering, if anyone knows, are there programs that help you organize family digital archives? (i.e. scanned material such as photos, letters, other writings, official documents)

What I'm looking for is not genealogy software (GenoPro is all we need for that), but rather an archival material management software, oriented towards the family.

Is anyone aware of something like that?

What you might need is a good indexing tool!

You mightm try picasa (photo indexing tool) by google, or something of more general purpose like copernic desktop search... (both free)

Only thing is that you have to edit each pictures properties and add relevant data, who, where, when.. and then you might browse it easily...

No, actually what I'm looking for (in case it exists...) is a single application that integrates the management of different types of material under the same umbrella and provides interconnection among the different files. A photo manager like Picasa treats all images as photos and that's all (for Picasa2 specifically, it's a very nice program, but with an abundance of flaws). Whereas a specialized program would be able to sort photos, letters, other writings, official documents (and I don't know what else) as different types of documents and provide some tools (I have no idea how) to handle a digital family archive in a more versatile way than having just everything scanned as, let's say, JPGs. I don't know, I guess it's not very clear in my mind either... Smile

It sounds as though you need something closer to a database program or at least a data management system.

I don't know of anything written specifically to manage family records, but have you looked at dBworx or NoteWorx from http://www.plworx-software.com/ - both freeware versions of more complex shareware programs. One or other may meet most of your requirements.

A new product called Collectionaire was developed just for this purpose.  www.collectionaire.com.  It's essentially an index in the cloud to all family contents in the cloud.  Interface is the family tree.
