Join The Family Curator tomorrow night to learn the basics of Caring for Keepsakes: The Top Ten Family Treasures at a free webinar Wednesday, 16 April 2014 sponsored by the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree 2014 Extension Series.
We’ll also be talking about the upcoming Heirloom Roadshow at SCGS Jamboree 2014, and how you can participate. Los Angeles Estate Auctioneer Joseph Baratta will join me at Jamboree to answer your questions about how to safely preserve, care for, and enjoy your family heirlooms.
Wednesday night’s 60-minute live webinar will focus on preservation techniques for ten of the most popular family heirlooms, from photographs to furniture, love letters to lockets, and bayonets to Bibles. The presentation will also feature examples of common home archive hazards such as pests, mold, and acid migration.
If you inherited family heirlooms, or you’re wondering how to safely care for your own treasures to pass them on to the next generation, this online presentation will give you the information you need to get started safely Caring for Keepsakes.
I will be sharing ideas from my book How to Archive Family Keepsakes and from the archives of The Family Curator website and blog. The audience is also invited to ask questions following the webinar during the Q&A session.

The initial live webcast of each SCGS Jamboree Extension Series presentation is offered free of charge to the public; SCGS members receive access to recorded sessions as a benefit of membership.
