GenWeekly's own Gena Philibert-Ortega offers preservation tips at St. George Jamboree
Genealogy Today is hosting a booth at this year's St. George Genealogy and Family Heritage Jamboree. One of the speakers is GenWeekly's own, Gena Philibert-Ortega. Gena gave a great class yesterday on Preserving Your Heirlooms, offering very good information on the display and long term care of everything from family photos, documents, and books to heirloom quilts. As always, Gena does her research. She exposes old fallacies and offers the pros and cons of new and popular methods of preservation. Importantly, she leaves leaves you with multiple resources to provide benefit beyond the class. Today Gena will be speaking on Cemeteries and Their Secrets. Gena is currently researching a book on cemeteries of the eastern Sierra, so has lots to offer. Worth your time if you are at the Jamboree or in the area.
