I have some old documents in my possession that I want to preserve. I have two old marriage licenses/certificates from the 30s & 40s, death certificates as old as 20 years and a family Bible from the 1910s(?) that's literally falling apart at the seams.
I've looked at products that are available, but it's confusing on what to buy. Everything is being stored in archival safe boxes, but beyond that... Should I use acid-free tissue or paper? Buffered or non-buffered? Is it safe to use a de-acidification (is that a word?) product on these old documents?
So, it's off to do a little research...
