Some are in good condition and some are staring to fall apart, but I really want to get them in my scrapbook in some fashion. Some about my husband's father who was in the Army Corps of Engineers and some things that he invented and built during WWII. Also some fun articles about my husband's mother you was something of a socialite and her escapades that made it into the Social section of the newspaper. Can you help? Thanks.

I was amazed to see that the archival mist actually made some of my old clippings look better as well as preventing them from getting any worse.

But have you thought of copying them.
My daughter borrowed an old scrapbook of my FIL's about their family business to do a school project.
When I saw the completed board, I freaked out because I had thought she adhered all the newspaper clippings to her poster board.
Once she calmed me down, she explained to me that my husband just copied them on our home printer/copier.
The seriously looked like the original.

Archival Mist and/or scanning the originals.

I have also laminated all my boys newspaper articles on cardstock from their sports. Then mix the laminated pages with other album pages. Love the look.
