Are you the keeper of your family history and want to ensure it stays well preserved?
This webinar will cover how to ensure the long-term preservation of your family's records, whether they are paper, photographs, fabric, or other family heirlooms. Best choices for care and handling, environment, storage materials, and vendors will be discussed. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask the presenter questions about care for their unique items.
Ms. Leming will also talk to us about what storage containers are really archival.
