Looking after family documents research guide

We all have precious items that we would like to keep safe. These can include: birth, marriage and death certificates, school reports, certificates of achievement, birthday cards, post cards, love letters, children’s drawings, diaries, photographs, photograph albums, cine films and video tapes, CDs and DVDs and books. To ensure your treasured items last for many years and can be passed on to future generations we have put together a guide containing handy hints and tips.
