Is your closet full of boxes of old family photographs? Is your basement bursting with letters, diaries, and other documents from your family history? Join the archival experts at New England Historic Genealogical Society and special guests, to learn how best to preserve and organize your family's memories for future generations. In addition to lectures on preserving family papers, photographs, home movies, and digital files, you will have a chance to chat with experts on the best practices for scanning flat items, learn about proper archival storage, see book and manuscript repair in action, and meet with the experts on how best to care for your photographs, documents, manuscripts, books, and family papers. Bring up to two easily transported items, or a photo of the items, and receive advice from conservators and archivists.
