Digital images are in order as they appear in the scrapbook.  Scrapbook is a three-ring notebook with plastic sleeve pages and items are inserted in them, either mounted on paper or simply put into the sleeves.  In scanning, items were unfolded and scanned in their entirety, including booklets and other multi-page items.  Some sleeves have identifications on the outside written on stickers; this information was added to the scan of the original item from inside the sleeve.
