Your Baby Treasures Time Capsule: How to Preserve Lasting Memories from Boby's First Year
This handbook illustrates how to create a lasting collection of memories from a child’s first year by combining basic preservation techniques with suggestions on what types of items a family historian may want to capture. Preservation fundamentals such as why photos fade and how to prevent that from happening; what makes some papers disintegrate while others stay intact; and which electronic media have the longest life expectancy and are ideal for long-term storage are clearly explained. Archival enclosures are also discussed, with the goal of ensuring the baby’s items will remain in good condition for decades. Tips on starting a baby’s genealogy, a detailed glossary, and contact information for archival companies are also included.
