It’s Preservation Week! (Please click on each image for more information.)
Hey folks, it’s Preservation Week! Time to take a hard look at what you’ve perhaps put off “preserving” thus far.
First, though, a short quiz:
Do you have “stuff?” (stuff from your family archive or genealogy / your kids’ childhood artwork / your collection of – insert whatever YOU collect here__________)
What is it? (old family photos / home movies / comic books / old newspapers / books / heirloom wedding dresses / old toasters / square basketballs / anything else under the sun!)
What needs to be done to archivally preserve it? (gotta find it first(!) / figure out what’s best for it)
When are ya gonna get around to it? (ummm…like NOW would be a good time)
Preservation Week offers each of us the chance to step back and think “Hey, what’s in my family archive / my art & photograph portfolio / my collection of (fill in the blank) that I REALLY should be archivally preserving?”
