Preserving Family Treasures

On Tuesday I gave a talk on newspapers for family history to Lesley Anderson's second level genealogy class at the Ottawa Catholic School Board. In the question period at the end one query was for advice on preserving newspaper clippings and photographs.

That was an opportunity to publicise the BIFHSGO pre-conference session Storing and Preserving Family Archives and Artefacts to be given by Kyla Ubbink on the morning of Friday 16 September. Kyla is an expert in Conservation, someone whose professional services I can personally recommend having had her conserve a family heirloom book for me.

For further information on the conference, and to sign up for this pre-conference session go to http://www.bifhsgo.ca/cpage.php?pt=22. There's a discount for pre-conference sessions to all who register for the full conference, and conference registration discounts for BIFHSGO members and early registrants. You can sign up by completing and mailing in the form included with the conference brochures which are being widely distributed, and from the above link; or register online at the above address.
