Topic: “Archive - Passing down your Family History: Keeping Family Memories Alive

While many families keep collections of old photos, historical documents, or family heirlooms, these precious items often require special care to preserve.

This session, titled “Passing Down Your History: Keeping Family Memories Alive”, will explore how to preserve your collections for the future. Topics include storage recommendations, handling tips, water damage recovery, scanning, file naming, and backing up digital media. Additionally, specific guidelines for textiles, photographs/negatives, documents, and scrapbooks are covered. Participants will leave the session with the tools needed to create a family archive and safeguard personal collections for future generations.
