The Genealogy Journey offers “Historic Family Papers and Photos: Store Them Right or Consider Donating Them” offers tips and links to resources and techniques on how to protect, preserve, and donate your family history papers and photographs.
Please! As a family member who has lost so many precious family records, photographs, and heirlooms to fire, neglect, and just ignored, please protect your old papers and photographs in whatever method is best for you and your family. They may not mean anything to you now, but for those of us who are searching for microscopic buried treasures on our family’s past, they are gold and diamonds.
