JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: What to do with archives and momentos when there are descendents #general
At the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre (www.sjac.org.uk ), we often receivetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
donations >from people where there are no descendants to pass them on to or
where the children etc aren't interested - so an appropriate archive or
museum is good to ensure material is looked after in the future.
Sometimes we provide the donor with a scanned copy or a photo (eg of medals), so
that any family members interested can see what the item looks like, but
don't have the responsibility of keeping it safe, conservation etc.
