I opened my door yesterday morning to see a very large box on my porch. Inside were the three Hollinger boxes and two types of archival folders I ordered recently.
It was just the boost I needed to cheer me up a bit. As the family member who spends the most time at home, I have been shocked to realize how much of my daily routine rotated around or was affected by our family dog. Her loss has been very sad for all of us but I spend my day being constantly reminded of her absence. So a little genealogy package cheer up was perfect yesterday.
Back to the Hollinger supplies.
Last year I was given all of my Grandma’s boxes. Among the treasures are many letters. Letters that I am so excited to go through, read, scan, and share with my family. But, I wasn’t entirely confident about how to go about properly caring for them.
Amy Johnson Crow’s interview with Denise Levenick came at exactly the right time. After watching I did some more reading and researching and selected some Hollinger supplies and placed my order.
If you have old letters or fragile family documents I highly suggest watching the interview. It’s not terribly long and has some great tips.
I have a few more projects to wrap up before I start organizing those letters, but I am so excited to put my Hollinger boxes to use!
