Show and Tell at FedUni SMB Library

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis afternoon,  Saturday 26 April 2014, 1.00-5.00 pm

Free event: WW1 Show & Tell at the Tippett Library on Federation University’s SMB Campus in Lydiard Street South, Ballarat CBD.

Need help researching  your World War 1 ancestor?  Specialist family researchers, historians and museum specialists team may have some suggestions to help you out.

Bring along you WW1 memorabilia and the team from VIPs will scan or photograph it for you.  Bring a USB stick so we will transfer the images we create on the day for your records, on the spot. This is an important task to undertake. If disaster struck and your memorabilia was destroyed you should at least have a good digital reproduction.

Need advice on how to appropriately care for items in your WW1 collection?  Do you know how to store granddad’s medals properly? What is the correct way to fold and store his WW1 uniform? Should you store folded letters in envelopes? There are  many things you should know to make sure your WW1 collection lasts for as long as possible.

We hope  to see you at the FedUni SMB campus library between 1.00 and 5.00 pm this afternoon.
