My mother handed me an envelope that she said contained some sort of
document >from her mgf. I opened the envelope and there was crumbling
paper inside. i was really afraid to handle it. It's my ggf's
citizenship document I think, and I could see a date, 1892.

The document had been folded many times and the paper was brown along
the folds and the document had separated wherever it had been folded
so it is now in several separate squares.

What should I do to piece this document together without completely
destroying it?
