Family History Week @ Moonee Valley Libraries

Preserving Your Documents

Learn how to preserve the old and use the new in exploring your family heritage. Have you go old photographs, paper documents or even more recent disks full of digital photographs and family videos, are you worried about how to preserve and store them? Ada Ackerly, history and genealogy researcher, will talk about document preservation as well as contingency planning for disasters which may wipe out these irreplaceable collections.
