One of the best things a genealogist can do for family members is to scan old family photographs and present them to others. In fact, the other family members do not even need to own a computer to view the digital images.
A friend of mine recently scanned more than 100 slides plus a few dozen prints that her family members had taken from the 1930s through 1980s. After saving them on her hard drive, she also loaded the images into a digital picture frame and presented it to her 90-year-old mother, who is not computer literate. The digital picture frame has many options. My friend selected the "slide show" option, where each image is displayed for ten seconds (with the time set in a menu), then is replaced by the next image. Her elderly mother can now can sit in her living room and view images of her life at any time, all without any computer expertise at all. You might want to do something similar.
