Description

Caring for your Family’s Photographs

French will teach how to date different types of images and how to use preventive techniques—including proper storage methods—to conserve your treasured photographs. To get started, bring a five family photographs to assess, identify, and rehouse; if you don’t have any photographs to bring with you, we’ll have some for you to work with.

If you’re a Museum of History member, your registration is $12. Please e-mail Kara Meyer (KMeyer@ncmuseumassoc.com) in the Associates office for a discount code. Want to become a member and support the Museum of History? Join today!
