I have received many newspaper clippings, certificates, photos, and other invaluable family heirlooms from a relative who would like them returned. Another question has given me great advice about scanning or photographing the documents.
One thing that is not covered however are ways to deal with documents with hard creases or have been rolled. (For example, a rolled 16"x24" high school diploma from 1904, or a newspaper clipping from 1942 folded many times over.)
How do I digitize these assets without damaging them yet still obtain an authentic facsimile?
