Starting a Family Archive

Q_ARCHIVEA curator and a collector have a lot in common: both selectively acquire, care for, use, and display special things. A family curator is a collector of family artifacts and memorabilia. Like any kind of collection, even family treasures can become overwhelming if they are not effectively organized and stored for preservation. The Starting a Family Archive Legacy QuickGuide™ is packed with essential information and basic strategies to help you organize a family archive in your home and find resources for restoration, preservation, and disaster recovery. Preserve what is important to you, to your family, and to your community!
