How to use old documents

Recently I was fortunate to find a cousin with scads of documents written to and about my 2x great grand father, Alexander A. Kennedy.

I have scanned some 246 documents and need some advice about how to display them or even if I should display them.

Many of them are hand written letter between Alex and/or his family members.  Some are just interesting reads and others contain valuable historical information.

I can mention these in the biography section but should I post the digitalized version somewhere also?

I would make a free space for them. It is just as easy as making a profile. You could upload the documents to the free space as images. You could then make a table on the free space to display thumbnails of your images. If you like this idea, I could set up the table for you if you need me to.

Here is an example of what I am talking about:

You could make a free-space page and add the images to that, then you can link from the profiles to the free-space page. Too make a free-space page click on add then new thing. Help:Free-Space_Profile
