Have you collected or inherited valuable family papers, photographs, or heirlooms? Do you have questions about how to store and preserve these family treasures? If so, you’ll want to stop by the free, all day Preservation Matters event on Saturday, May 5, at the National Archives at Kansas City.
Professionals from the National Archives, University of Kansas Stannard Conservation Lab, and Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering, and Technology will be available to answer your questions about how to preserve and record your family memories. Attendees will hear advice on a variety of preservation specialties, such as print photographs, scrapbooks, quilts, and other unique heirlooms. There will also be sessions on oral history techniques and tips on how to organize your genealogy research. Attendees are welcome to come and go as they please, so stop by for one presentation or all.
