Do you have boxes filled with photographs, family heirlooms stored in the attic, wonderful stories shared by your grandparents or family records you aren’t sure how to preserve? If so, make plans to attend the Preserving Our Memories event on Saturday, Sept. 12 at Sauder Village.
“Preserving artifacts and sharing stories from the past is an important part of our mission at Sauder Village,” shared Kim Krieger, PR/Media Relations at Sauder Village. “From genealogy and scrap booking to heirloom and photo preservation – during this special event guests will have an opportunity to gather the information and resources they need to start preserving their own family memories at home.”
At the Preserving our Memories event, guests will have plenty of opportunity for education and inspiration as demonstrations will take place throughout the day. Local experts will share information about genealogy, photograph preservation and scrap booking. Information about caring for heirlooms on a dime and how to use local and county genealogy resources will also be shared. Guests can also learn about digital photo books and kids will have an opportunity to make a “thumbprint family tree.”
Other upcoming events at Sauder Village include Home School Appreciation Days Sept. 15 through 19 and the Celebrate Our Artisans event Sept. 15 through 20. Yet this fall guests will also enjoy visiting Sauder Village for the always-popular Apple Butter Making event on Sept. 23 to 26, Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day Live on Sept. 26, the All Aboard Train Event on Oct. 3 to 4 and Fall on the Farm/Scout Day on Oct. 10.
