Once you've found all these family treasures, what should you do with them?
Once you've found all these family treasures, what should you do
with them? How do you ensure they'll be around for many generations to
come? For all of your family artifacts, documents and heirlooms, take
the proper precautions outlined in the books listed in the box on the
next page. Here are some suggestions:
• Always handle historical items with great care. Wash your hands before handling and, if possible, wear white cotton gloves.
• Never write directly on photographs, front or back. It's best to
put photos in acid-free sheet protectors and label the sheet protector.
