Class description: Join a local archivist to learn how to take care of those old family photographs and documents you’ve had tucked away in that hutch for the last 20 years! You’ll learn not only how to take care of your family records, but also why you’re doing it in that particular way. We’ll also discuss “myths” that we’ve all heard that we’re supposed to do, and why those are outdated or incorrect.
Note: If you are taking this class, you are welcome to bring your own photos and documents for a more hands on experience.
