About The Event
Many of us have them: piles of family papers stashed haphazardly in a box in the attic, photographs peeling off old photo album pages in the basement. As an archivist dealing with old and rare materials, Kate Dietrick often gets asked how to preserve and organize these snippets of family history. Join Kate to learn expert tips to keep your memorable items safe for the long haul. We’ll cover how to store aging documents, who to contact to repair the binding of an old family book, how to disassemble photo albums that are harming your photographs, and any other questions you may have!
This virtual event is for anyone who is interested in cleaning out, organizing, and keeping safe their family history.
