Preserving Heirlooms

   The May Family History Workshop presented by the Kentucky Historical Society and the Kentucky Genealogical Society will focus on preserving your family's heirlooms.

   Louise Jones, KHS director of special collections and library, and Trevor Jones, KHS director of museum collections and exhibitions, will discuss techniques for handling, storing and preserving artifacts and paper materials.

   The "second Saturday" workshop will be from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. May 14 at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History at 100 W. Broadway in Frankfort, Kentucky.  The seminar is free and open to the public.

   A box lunch (sandwich, chips, cookie and drink) is available for $6, payable at the door. You must register before noon on Friday, May 13, to reserve a lunch.  To register, contact the library's reference desk by email or by calling 502-564-1792, ext. 4460.  You can also bring your own lunch or go out to several near-by restaurants.

   Following each workshop, the Kentucky Technology in Genealogy Users Group offers a free program to help support family history researchers' use and understanding of technology.

   After the workshop, plan to stick around for a little research. The library will be open until 5 p.m.
