The Tarrant County Archives offers access to full scans of a growing number of scrapbooks online.

Scrapbook pages are scanned full color 'as is,' except in the case of fold-out pages. These are folded out so the item can be read. As a result of choices made by the scrapbook maker, items that overlap and are not designed for fold-out will not always be readable in the scan.
