Letter Preserving Tips
#1

Here's a super link on the History Channel site that gives great tips for preserving your document, letters, photos, etc.

 

NOTE: One of our forum members recently discovered that the link I had here is no longer functional.

 

 

So here's some new ones for everyone:

Great Link WD. I have a box of about 300 letter I found at an antique store from a gentleman that served in the CBI theater. The letters are from when he left home to when he returned. Without looking I believe they start in1 944 and end in early 1946.

 

Good ideas on what I can do with them now.

You're welcome Nick. So many of us have these precious articles, letters, newspapers, etc., now, so I hope I can spare some pain of loss or destruction by providing helpful links like this one.

 

I have bought acid-free boxes and will now store all my memorabilia in them to help preserve them.

I did not read though all of each article, so this could be in there somewhere.

 

I collect a lot of original WWII pictures. If you have them stored individually (not in albums) I put them in an acid free sleeve, go to a sports cards shop and get the plastic holders for them so they don't bend, and put them in a large drawer so no light is exposed to them.

Just my 2 cents.
