I recently inherited a large collection of documents and photos. I am in the process of digitizing all of the items. I have created two sources related to the two family branches of the tree and used the "correspondence, personal, private, in collection template to create two collections. I have the idea that all media (could be 100 or more documents and images) related to each of those two collections should be contained within the relevant collection source media tab and some documents and images should also appear in the individual's profile attached to the relevant tag. This would mean that all media related to facts in an individuals profile would use the same source with a distinguishing citation for the particular fact under consideration.
By extension, I could also create a "Drouin Collection" -source that would contain all images related to persons in the database for BMDB facts, as opposed to an individual Drouin source/citation for every BMDB event.
To put this into perspective, I have about 60K people and 16K images in my database and 30 years of citations (some good, many very bad). My goal is to deposit all my work with the national archives in versioned sets (about one per year until my demise) to preserve my 35 years of research and writing. I would like to be able to create a first-class product.
Would anyone with experience in this area care to comment on the efficacy of this approach, and/or suggest alternatives. An Image naming and reference system is also germane to the topic.
