45. I've been doing that, too

Try to identify as many people as possible.

Archivists recommend scanning to TIFF format with the goal of a final size of at least 5x7" at 600 dpi (3000x4200 pixels). That is from the guy at the Photo Archives for the state of Florida. He recently scanned much of one of our family albums to add to the Florida Memory Project. http://www.floridamemory.com/photographiccollection/collections/ So far they have not added my pictures to their online collections.

One disadvantage of TIFFs (aside from the size) is that you cannot attach the information about the photo to the digital file. I like converting to JPG so I can attach as much info as possible in the IPTC data.

I put some of my albums on my website, using jAlbum to create web albums pages. jAlbum can pick up the IPTC data and put it as captions on the pages - it makes it really easy to make very good looking presentations of your photo collections. jAlbum started as open source but now has gone commercial. I find it worth the $39 because of the time it saves me to get the pictures and information online.
