Saving Family Treasures @ Downstate Delaware Genealogical Society @ Downstate Delaware Genealogical Society

Family treasures are often neglected, frequently tucked away in drawers, trunks and attics. Preserving these heirlooms – items such as marriage certificates, family Bibles, letters, journals, and photos – is important, for they tell us about the past and connect the generations. Yet, all too often, these relics are lost to accidents, deterioration, or the urge to clean house. This talk introduces caretakers to basic methods for preserving and protecting family relics and papers.
