Museum-Quality Storage for Photos & Family Heirlooms with Kate Jacus of Archival Methods

Thursday, January 16, 2020 @ 11:30 pm - 1:30 am


Please join Historic Palmyra on January 16, 2020 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Alling Coverlet Museum, 122 William St., Palmyra for their first program of the new year, Museum-Quality Storage for Photos & Family Heirlooms with Kate Jacus of Archival Methods.

We all understand the importance of saving family history, and along with photos, most people are also saving other documents and artifacts for future generations to enjoy. These preservation goals require specialized products and procedures. In this hands-on workshop, Kate Jacus will share professional techniques for museum-quality storage solutions for photographs and heirlooms.

This 2-hour presentation will delve briefly into the science of what it means to be “archival,” and explore museum standards for handling and storage of photographs, negatives, slides, film, textiles, family documents, and common family heirlooms. If audience size permits, participate in a hands-on packing and storage of real objects. Door prize and sample materials provided by Archival Methods.
This event is no charge and part of Historic Palmyra’s monthly 3rd Thursday community programming. All are welcome!

Kate Jacus is the Marketing Coordinator at Archival Methods, but also the founder of The Photo Curator, LLC, and a certified professional photo organizer helping families and businesses design their legacies through documenting and preserving photos and heirlooms. Memory keeping since she was a kid, Kate graduated from making vacation scrapbooks to earning a master’s degree in Museum Studies and jobs at two Smithsonian museums. For eight years, she managed the care and storage of half a million objects at The Strong National Museum of Play, and handled the packing of hundreds of museum loans. After getting her MBA, she broke into marketing, spending a decade as CMO at Genesee Regional Bank and The Harley School. Ready for a change, she started her own business in 2016. Kate lives in Brighton with her husband and 7-year-old daughter.
