Photo Archiving -- Scanner vs Camera

I want to make archival quality digital copies of my old family photographs.

Would it be better for me to buy a high quality digital camera and photograph them, or should I buy a scanner and scan them in?

I have access to some analog photographic equipment including a tripod and photographer's lights with light diffusing umbrellas.

If photographing is best, what specific camera do you recommend? Are there any special camera functions that would be useful.

If a scanner is best, what specific scanner do you recommend and what features should it have?

Thank you in advance.
