Preserving your family Treasures @ Senior Center

Do you have photos, letters and other artifacts that may be in danger of permanent damage if not maintained carefully? If you’re like many people, some of your most valued documents and photos are stuffed in drawers and boxes, or stored in your attic, under your bed, and in your basement. While you may suspect these aren’t ideal storage places for preserving your heritage for the next generation, you may not be acquainted with the most appropriate methods to use. This session will discuss fundamentals of preservation and conservation and demonstrate various methods for handling and storage of family documents, photos, scrapbooks, cookbooks, postcards, and other memorabilia.
