Presented by by experts from American Ancestors and the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center
Is your closet full of boxes of old family photographs? Is your basement bursting with letters, diaries, and other documents from your family history research? Do you have family memorabilia that you want to make sure is around for generations to come? Chances are you have a stack of family papers, albums, and other keepsakes tucked away that you don’t know what to do with. This virtual preservation roadshow will teach you best practices for surveying, handling, and storing family materials and provide you with expert advice on how to care for items in your collection.
Participants will submit a photo of one item from their collection and receive advice from archivists and conservators. Submitted items may include photographs, albums, scrapbooks, bound volumes, born-digital or obsolete media, textiles, certificates and other documents, or other small, hand-held objects.
Access to 3+ hours worth of instructional video, handouts, and articles
Personalized advice from a qualified archivist or conservator on one family item*
