digitise everything from 1838 on

The History of Paper and Papermaking: "Charles Fenerty of Halifax made the first paper from wood pulp (newsprint) in 1838. Charles Fenerty was helping a local paper mill maintain an adequate supply of rags to make paper, when he succeeded in making paper from wood pulp. He neglected to patent his invention and others did patent papermaking processes based on wood fiber."

So digitise as much as possible before it falls apart like old newspapers
