I had a lovely surprise in browsing through very, very old photographs and wondered what is the best way to copy them digitally. I would use this to Upload to my family website. Can anyone recommed a way that will not harm the originals as they must be from around 1860. Does scanning them make them slowly fade as this is intense light being shone onto the paper?

According to Google, it won't harm them at all. Good question though.

I think as in all photo copying it does no harm to the photo but the down side is that the more you copy of the same photo the quality will reduce, in the same way as photo negatives did.

Just to clarify: if you copy a copy (and so on), the quality will deteriorate but if you copy the original each time, the quality will be constant and won't deteriorate.
