16th Annual South Davis Family History Fair
Woods Cross High School north of Salt Lake City is the new location for the Utah Genealogical Association Family History Fair April 19 and 20, 2013 where I will be presenting the Friday night keynote “Treasures in the Attic: Every Keepsake Has a Story.”
This two-day event offers over one hundred family history sessions on topics covering a wide variety of subjects, from finding Irish and German ancestors to working with newspapers and cemetery records.
On Saturday, April 20, I will present two sessions on preserving family treasures and signing copies of my new book How to Archive Family Keepsakes:
The Frugal Curator
Archival storage doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Discover practical DIY (Do-It-Yourself) solutions that will save you time and money as you organize and store your family treasures. See how to make a family history time capsule for your next family reunion or event.
The Things They Leave Behind: Caring for Family Keepsakes
Learn how to care for common family treasures such as photo albums, loose photographs, Bibles, clocks, jewelry, and more. View photos of damaged items, learn to identify common hazards such as silverfish, mold, acid migration. Discover what to save when you inherit a houseful of “treasures,” how and where to store your keepsakes, and how to set up a home archive so you can easily access items for research and sharing.
Registration fees for this event are $15.00; a printed syllabus is available for an additional fee. More information is available at the Utah Genealogical Association Website.
