Julie (224) - Nicole, another conservator

Oops, I meant to focus on Nicky here, not on the bloke whom I did not actually meet.

Nicky gave the second presentation which covered the best ways to preserve Family History. The cost is not going to be as much as I had first surmised. The biggest cost will be getting two books rebound, but they advised to always get quotes. They provided lists of conservators who work with the general unwashed joe.

This seminar cost $40 for 3 hours and 4 conservators which I thought was fairly good value. They said there was a limit of 25 to the course but I thought there could have been more than that. Attendees were overwhelmingly female. I think maybe 3 blokes were interested enough.

Well if it's any consolation, I'm still scanning slides of my fathers!

I do have his journals typed and ready to print though.
