Workshop

Held in HSP’s conservation lab, this hands-on workshop will teach genealogists how to protect their family documents. Learn how to use proper archival materials, how to repair minor tears and stains, and how to handle old photographs. Each attendee will be given a conservation kit, including a micro spatula, bone folder, water brush, and mending paper samples. Participants are welcome to bring one personal item, which will be assessed by HSP’s conservation director.
