A Monthly - Weekend With Shades - Column
Last month I received so many excellent questions about various aspects of archives and how we can apply them to our family history questions that I felt terrible that I couldn’t answer them all right away. Hopefully you’ll be patient with me if it takes some time to get to the topic nearest and dearest to your heart!
Since there were multiple questions about the topic of appraisal and the ins and outs of throwing items away, and because in my opinion this is the trickiest thing of all when it comes to our (or at least my) own family collections, it seemed like a good place to start.
