Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society Sayhun Library
Learn how to preserve family photos, artifacts, and heirlooms this Saturday, November 16, 2013 at the monthly meeting of the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society where I will present Caring for Keepsakes, The Top 10 Family Treasures.
Inheriting family keepsakes can be a burden and a blessing. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to save, what to toss, and what to do with what’s left. On Saturday I’ll be sharing preservation tips for some of the most popular family keepsakes, with ideas for setting up a home archive to protect items while keeping them available for research and sharing.
It’s always a treat to visit beautiful Santa Barbara, and I’m looking forward to this weekend when I’ll return to my college town (UCSB is a few miles up the coast) for a day of genealogy with the SBCGS. The Society also operates the Sahyun Library on Castillo Street in Santa Barbara, and hosts the “Found Treasures” project highlighted on their website.
The SBCGS meets at the First Presbyterian Church, 21 E. Constance at State in Santa Barbara. Meeting begins at 9:30 am; program at 10:30 am. More information may be found here. Hope to see you there!
