This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Denise Levenick, the Family Curator, author of How to Archive Family Keepsakes.
In every family someone ends up with Mom’s and Dad’s “stuff”—a lifetime’s worth of old family photos, papers, and memorabilia packed into boxes, trunks, and suitcases. This inheritance can be as much a burden as it is a blessing. How do you organize your loved one’s estate in a way that honors your loved one, keeps the peace in your family and doesn’t take over your home or life? How to Archive Family Keepsakes gives you step-by-step advice for how to organize, distribute and preserve family heirlooms.
Whether you have boxes filled with treasures or are helping a parent or relative downsize to a smaller home, this book will help you organize your family archive and preserve your family history for future generations.
Denise Levenick is a writer and genealogist who writes about organizing, preserving, and sharing family history at her website www.thefamilycurator.com, voted one of Family Tree Magazine’s 40 Best Genealogy Blogs in 2010 and in 2011.
