Apps for Stamp Collecting

Do you need a guide for stamp collecting? There are so many ways to organize a collection. I have a collection of stamps that my Dad had. There are stamps from Japan, Mexico, United States, Canada and a few other places I don’t recognize. Dad's passed so I can't ask him any questions about where or how he acquired the stamps.

A few things I learned while hunting around on the internet.
President Franklin Roosevelt collected 1.2 million stamps during his lifetime.
I also learned that collecting stamps started as a child's hobby. And as these children grew to adulthood, stamp collecting hobby became a hobby they continued. These were the hobbyest that wrote the guides to stamp collecting. And now there are SO many apps to check out.

While talking to my sister-in-law, I found out that she and brother-in-law, both collected stamps. My sister-in-law told me that she liked collecting stamps from different countries. Imagining what it was like in those different places.

Colorful stamps are a great way to learn about geography. There are so many ways to sort the stamps by plant life, animal life. By holidays, entertainers, transportation and movies. The subject matter is so diverse! Just thinking about beginning another hobby is exciting.
