Maps, broadsides, marriage certificates and newsprint clippings can all be preserved as family keepsakes or for institutional archives. Polyester encapsulation, repair and deacidification are available.
Most old documents in need of conservation require several treatments. These can include: washing, deacidification, light bleaching, repair, in-fills, flattening, backing, and encapsulation. Each object, paper or vellum, is carefully examined and discussed before conservation.
