Distributing archived photos
After 2 plus years of work I am coming to the end of archiving my late father's family photo collection. It is about 8000 plus photos. They are already up on flicker for the family to view. But I also would like to send out the collection as jpegs so some of my Dad's grand kids can preserve the images for future generations. As jpegs the collection is a bit under 30GB, I was thinking of our hinging some 32GB flash drives and sending them out to about 5 family members to Either keep or pass around, to make copies. I have two questions...
1 I know no digital media last for ever but for the foreseeable future is NTFS for mater flash drives the best medium for a collection of this size.
2 Is there a way to setup the drive so the photos will not be accidentally deleted.
I will of course be keeping the master tif files and also the flicker copy's . Plus all my photography is backed up on site plus on crashplan.
I welcome any comments

You could use SD cards. These have a physical write-lock that you slide and if left that way prevents writes. I think you can remove the little tab and no one would ever be able to write to the device again.
You could burn the images to a set of data DVDs but that would take a bunch of your time.
