Gift Options For Family Researchers Abound
This week marks the beginning of the holiday gift-giving season. Perhaps you are wondering what you might give to a fellow family history researcher or genealogist, or maybe your family and friends are asking you for hints.
Simple, practical gifts include a disposable camera to take to cemeteries, a package of photo paper, mini-cassette recorder for archive research or interviewing relatives, vinyl-coated paper clips, acid-free file folders and archival-safe, acid free and lignin-free storage materials.
Always welcome are polypropylene sheet protectors by the box, acid-free paper, archival mounting corners for photographs, and archival marking pens and pencils for labeling. A great resource for these items is Light Impressions Direct online at www.lightimpressionsdirect.com.
