The collection numbers 372 glass negatives and 57 photographs from the turn of 19th century, gained by the Museum`s workers between 1976 and 1980. The impulse for that discovery were two photographs taken by Migacz, sent by his distant relative for the contest "Family rites in folk culture: love and marriage", organized by the Museum. Those photpgraphs turned out to be extremely documents of culture of Lachy Sądeckie Group as well as the testimony of work and life of their author.
