|Old family photos.

After storing them for years, I've finally started going through my deceased parent's photos. There are numerous albums, but even more loose photos. Some are antiques - family members from generations back, some are baby pictures from our childhood, etc. There are just so many. I plan on scanning the best ones and putting them on CD for myself and my brothers. But my question is what do I do with all the photos? I feel weird throwing them away. I guess they could just live forever in my garage, but since I will have them on CD it seems kinda silly to keep the actual photos. I don't know what to do with them. Would it be awful of me to throw them away after scanning them? Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.|
ETA: Thanks so much for all the responses and advice. I hadn't considered the unreliability of storing them on CDs. I have online accounts like Photobucket, etc. and I have a couple of external hard drives. I will figure it out. And I decided that I definitely cannot throw them away. Especially the very old ones. I will try to carve out time to organize and put into albums or binders the photos that I can't part with. Thanks again. You guys are great.
