Question about keeping old newspaper clippings #records

Debbie Terman

Hello all,
I've been looking through some newspaper clippings that my father saved about 50 years ago. I've scanned and saved them digitally, and I'm wondering whether I need to keep the originals (which are quite yellow and crumbling at the edges). These are random local news stories (local civic association meeting, my parents had a party in their new house, etc.) -- not obits or anything related to vital records. Thoughts?
