April 27- May 3 2014 is Preservation Week! Many libraries, museums, historical societies and other cultural organizations will be hosting events on preservation. These events can be especially helpful for the family historian who has collected materials but does not know the best ways to protect them from damage and preserve them for future generations. Events on preserving audio, video, family photographs, books, scrapbooks, and paper collections will all be held in locations throughout New York state during the week. Check the New York Family History School calendar for a Preservation Week event near you. Please note, as of this posting, the calendar at ala.org/preservation week had not been updated with all New York preservation week events. The New York Family History School calendar has the most comprehensive list of preservation week events, as well as genealogical events, throughout the New York region.
If you know of a Preservation Week event that is not on the New York Family History School calendar, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org so that it may be included.
