How to Preserve Old Letters — Amy Johnson Crow

Great advice on how to organize and preserve old family letters. Now to work on doing this with my grandmother Harriet’s letters from 1908 and the Grace Means collection in 1923 and 1924.

One day I just might get to my parents’ letters and mine.

You’ve found or inherited old letters. Congratulations! You have a real family treasure. Now you need to learn how to preserve those old letters. I recently spoke with Denise Levenick, the Family Curator, for her tips on preservation. (First step: Don’t burn them.)
