Preserving Your Family Treasures
June 4, 2013
Family personal collections like diaries, photos and letters are precious to you and to future generations. Paper-based collections and other materials deteriorate over time, but proper care, handling and storage of your treasures will help ensure that they are available for generations to come. Jennifer Brannock, Librarian at USMís McCain Library, will help us learn how to preserve and care for our family treasures, Tuesday, June 4, 2013, 7:00 PM, at the Genealogy Library, 107 S. Park Avenue, in Hattiesburg. This free presentation provided by South Mississippi Genealogical & Historical Society is open to all.
Our next regular meeting will be in August. Enjoy your summer with genealogy and history projects.
