The Archives at American Ancestors collects the material culture and written history of families across the country. This webinar will feature items of mourning from the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections and the Wyner Family Heritage Center at NEHGS, including letters of condolence, coffin plates, mourning jewelry, embroidered memorials, and more from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. Each object has its unique place in history and family memory; hear the stories behind these items and the families who donated them.
