Meet Saving Face
Well, Shades readers, my wish is coming true. Rebecca Fenning has very kindly accepted my invitation to join Weekend With Shades. The author of A Sense of Face will author the new Saturday column, Saving Face, "Archives for the Rest of Us." We are all going to benefit from her wealth of knowledge. I'm so excited!
Read all about her take on this new column and welcome her to Shades!
This can run the gamut from archivist's negative stereotypes of genealogists as little old ladies in glasses who don't know what they're doing, to family historian's simple confusion when faced with an archival finding aid.
I also know there are a lot of archivist secrets family historians always want to know about things like preservation, storage and the art of folder labeling. For a long time, I've wanted to lend a voice to the conversation and some clarity to the confusion -- a chance that our dear footnoteMaven has now given me as a member of the Weekend with Shades team!
Start getting your archival questions ready, because I'm looking forward to answering them!
