Your Tool Kit Starts with Stuff You Already Have Around the House
by Mary Danielsen: Documented Legacy, LLC
Create a workspace, whether it’s a folding tea table in the corner of the dining room of a banquet table in your home office, you’ll need a place to spread out and work. Within reach you’ll need some handy tools and any archival supplies you purchased. This week create a preservation tool kit. Start with stuff you already have around the house.
When you’re just starting a family history project, compiling photos, documents and other important artifacts pile up quickly. Our priceless memories deserve archival care. Family Tree magazine offers a Document Preservation Kit that helps you identify your documents and record additional facts or stories; photocopy up to 25 fragile documents onto archival paper, protect originals in polyethylene bags; and create a digital backup on an Archival Gold CD. The instructions are loaded with great tips.
