Pictures, and China, and Keepsakes . . . Oh My!
I've collected all these things.  Now what do I do?
 
A challenge for every genealogist and family archivist is what to do with
the things we have discovered and collected.  Do you preserve them?  Do you lock them away in a safe?  Do you display them?  How?  How do you make sure they are not lost to future generations while enjoying them yourself?  This presentation will look at the choices that have to be made in deciding what to do and some options that are available.  If you have something you are wondering about, consider bringing it with you for ideas.
