The Center for Southeast Studies
I'm so happy to see that the collections was donated for preservation and not thrown away in the trash. Quite often this is what can happen when someone dies and family members go through their personal belonging. We must remember that we're throwing away our history. Making the decision to donate your collections is preserving your history and the history of the community you live in.
I value old photographs and enjoy preserving them. Through the study of genealogy many people who live in St. Helena and Tangipahoa Parish has shared many of their photographs with me. With today technology its so easy to share with other family members and friends. Social media has allowed us to share precious memories, events and photographs of family members and friends instantly.
If you would like to donate your family collection and don't know where to start. Please contact "Nurturing Our Roots" for more information on how to preserve your family history.
One of the main reasons that I preserve and donate my family history, photographs is because I want to preserve the family history and educate others in my family. I find it to be very important for my family and many of my family members appreciate it. Especially the younger people who want to know more about their family history.
