Event Details

Gloria Conti and Andy McFarlane, Conservators, National Records of Scotland

Family Papers – letters, books, photographs – are often our most precious possession, but by their very nature they are fragile and easily damaged.

National Records of Scotland Conservators Andy McFarlane and Gloria Conti will be giving a talk on how to care for your family papers, ranging from storage solutions to safe display and handling.

After an introductory talk, the session will be dedicated to questions from the public who are encouraged to bring along items from their own family archives to spark discussion and receive general advice on how to look after them. Sample records and storing material will also be on display.

To book, please visit: Attendees can also turn up on the day and any remaining spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
