Protect Your Family Treasures: Museum Quality Storage for Photos and Memorabilia

November 23, 2019, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Geneva History Museum
543 South Main Street
Geneva, NY 14456

Join us for a presentation by Kate Jacus of Archival Methods on  protecting your family heirlooms at the Geneva Historical Society on Saturday, November 23, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Saving family history is important, but how do you ensure it will last for future generations to enjoy? Preservation of photos, paper, cloth and other artifacts requires specialized products and procedures. In this hands-on workshop, Kate Jacus will share professional techniques for museum-quality storage solutions for photographs and memorabilia. During the 2- hour program, participants will get information on archival methods, museum standards, and the care and handling of common family heirlooms. If the size of the audience and time permits, there will be a hands-on experience of packing real objects for storage. A door prize and sample materials will be provided by Archival Methods.

There are no fees for this exciting program, but reservations are requested for planning purposes. Please call the Historical Society at 315-789-5151 to make a reservation by 10 a.m. on Friday November, 22, 2019
