Documents


Drop-front boxes protect children's
artwork for years to come

The first step in archiving your documents is to identify which documents to keep (as well as what NOT to keep), and then establish a plan for how to organize and preserve them before something is lost or damaged beyond repair. At familyarchives.com, you'll use the exact same standards and materials used by professional archivists at places like the National Archives and Smithsonian Institution to care for your documents, so they'll last far into the future.

Whether it's a birthday card or a child's first drawing. Or maybe postcards sent during a loved one's worldly travels; or the set of Hardy Boys novels from your childhood. Perhaps it's a love note written on a napkin, or a ticket to a famous rock concert. Or something even more irreplaceable, like your grandfather's journals.

All of these documents are fragile, unique…and most of all…personal.

You may have these precious memories in your possession – scattered around the house, stored in different boxes in the attic or tucked away in folders in a drawer. And now you want to preserve them. But how? What are the proper techniques?
