The Joining of Families!

I am a retired museum Collections Manager and passionate about encouraging the community to catalogue their collections.

Yes, it takes time and if you don’t have time, Treasured Collections offers a service to do this for you.

Allow me to capture some stories, document and handful of inter-related artifacts and give the package (paper and/or computer version) to your parents or grandparents a gift.

Start with something that is not on display in the home:  A wedding dress hidden away wrapped in tissue. Photographing the dress, and wedding ensemble items, documented alongside a marriage certificate, and a wedding photograph – makes everyone smile.

Documentation contains, names, dates, parents, and grandparents names, places born and where the marriage took place.
