Last fall when we offered “Picture Perfect: How to Care for and Identify Photographs,” we had an overwhelming response.  The limited seating filled up so fast, we had to turn some people away.  The NSHS Library/Archives division is happy to announce the return of the one day workshop on Saturday, March 26, 2011 from 9am-4pm at the Nebraska History Museum (15th & P Sts, Lincoln, NE).

The morning session will cover types of heirloom photographs and suggestions on how to preserve, organize, and digitize them.  In the afternoon, costuming expert Kay Cynova, Director of Interpretation at Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer, will explain how to use historical fashions to identify and date your family photographs.

The program is FREE, but seating is limited. Reserve your seat today by phone (402-471-4785) or by email ().   If you are unable to attend and would still like to learn more about caring for your family’s heirlooms, check out our website, Saving Your Treasures.  The experts at the Gerald R. Ford Conservation Center in Omaha give excellent, practical advice on how to care for your family’s historic treasures.
