Homestead offers archive workshop
DeKALB – Preserving important papers, photographs, and other items of historic value is an important part of the mission of DeKalb’s Joseph F. Glidden Homestead & Historical Center.
An archives workshop will be presented from 1 to 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at the homestead, 921 W. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb, between Copy Service and Burger King.
The archives workshop will showcase the work done at Glidden Homestead, along with some of its treasures. It also will give participants practical advice about labeling and preserving their own family heirlooms. Learn how archives differ from a museum and how an archive collects, preserves and makes historical records available for research. Samples of archival supplies and supply catalogs will be on display and conservation tips will be given for preserving family photos and heirlooms.
