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.
You must pre-register to attend the live webcast and receive the free handout. 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.

Hi Lynda! Thank you for joining us last night and for visiting The Family Curator. You almost made it to the end — but to relieve the suspense, here are heirlooms that you missed: #4-Furniture, #3-Jewelry, #2-Quilts and Handmade Items, #1-Photos. Did you find any surprises in the list?
Good luck with your collections.

Hi Denise – I am a member of the SoCal Gen. Society and really enjoyed the presentation you gave on Caring for Keepsakes last night. Hope you are feeling better . . . bad colds are no fun. Unfortunately I had to leave unexpectedly during your presentation of the Top 10 Heirlooms. Is that list posted somewhere on your blog or website? I did get numbers 5 thru 10, but would love to know what the top 4 heirlooms are. In my family I am the one who got the stuff. Your seminar was an eye opener and I have a lot to work on to get items sorted and into some kind of order. Thanks for any info you care to share.
