announce Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer as the guest speaker for our
October meeting. Her presentation will be "Preserving Your Family
Papers, Photographs, Books, and Digital Materials for Future Generations".
[Time and place information below.]
Genealogy is not just about finding relatives. Many of us have
inherited fragile and sentimental photos, papers, photographs and
books >from our family. How can we best keep these materials for
future generations? Get those items out of your desk drawers,
cardboard boxes and folders and start doing it right!
Christine will teach us about archivally sound methods and materials
for storing and preserving family history items. The presentation
will cover causes of deterioration, materials to use and avoid,
choosing a location to store items, selecting safe photograph albums,
dealing with mold and mildew, storing digital files, and much more.
