My Curious Ancestral Origins

My Curious Ancestral Origins

A while back I took the Family Finder and full sequence mtDNA tests through Family Tree DNA. As many of you may know, Family Finder is an autosomal test which indicates your deep ancestral roots (origins) as well as about five generations of family relations through all lines. The mtDNA test shows only direct line ancestry through your maternal line (mother, maternal grandmother, maternal great-grandmother etc.).

When I got the tests back they contained some unexpected results. Unexpected because according to my research I have the following genetic makeup:

  • 75% British Isles (25% Irish, 37.5% Scottish, 12.5% Welsh)
  • 12.5% Western and Central Europe (Germany, Austria and vicinity)
  • 12.5% Eastern Europe (Bohemia, now the Czech Republic)

but according to Family Tree DNA my ancestral origins are actually:

  • 61% British Isles
  • 29% Western and Central Europe
  • 6% Eastern Europe
  • 3% Scandinavia
  • 1% Central Asia (The -stans area)

Curious to say the least, especially that 1% Central Asia component. And Scandinavia—were did that come from?

So being a diehard researcher (all the Walker’s are) and amateur historian I got online hoping to resolve some of the mysteries. What accounted for those discrepancies?

Invasions that’s what. Invasions and mass migrations. Remember, autosomal DNA shows deep roots, back many thousands of years. My research only goes back several hundred years. Well, reliably anyway. After a few hours online I found out quite a few bits of British, European, and Central Asian history that could account for the percentages revealed by my DNA. But before I tell you what I found I’ll start with a disclaimer: There’s a lot of chatter on the web regarding DNA, haplogroups, migrations etc., some scientific, some not, and my research was nowhere near exhaustive. Add to that the fact that, relatively speaking (ha ha), genetic migration research is in its infancy and the theory is freakin’ complex. To me, this means that any conclusions drawn by li’l ole me from web DNA research should really be put into the category of “My, isn’t that interesting.”

Okay, now that I’ve taken care of the legal stuff, let’s get down to the business of what I found on the web.

Central Asia (Map courtesy of https://www.familytreedna.com/)
Central Asia (Courtesy of https://www.familytreedna.com/)

First I looked at that Central Asia percentage (Afghanistan and surrounds). For this I also factored in the h6a1a haplogroup revealed by my mtDNA full sequence test. According to numerous sources the H6 haplogroup “likely originated in the Middle East or Central Asia” (FamilytreeDNA.org) so that seemed appropriate. Remember, my haplogroup comes from my maternal side which is the Eastern European side. I found a couple of possible explanations for this 1%:

Last week I attacked the unexpectedly high Western and Central Europe percentage. This research ended up offering several explanations for my Scandinavian roots as well. Here is a sampling of what I found:

  • Vikings. Yes, Vikings (the Danes). Well that should have been obvious to me since I am fairly up on the history of the British Isles but no, I completely forgot about their occupation. They expanded into the eastern coasts of England and Scotland in 865 A.D. but also into Normandy, Russia, and the Middle East (The Guardian). This could account for the Scandinavian bit.
  • The Angles and Saxon migration to the British Isles which began at the end of the Roman occupation in 450 A.D. and ran through to the Norman conquest around 1066 A.D. (Wikipedia). The Anglo-Saxons were germanic tribes but this period also included migrations from Franco areas and the Scandinavian continent. This could account for the higher than expected Central and Western Europe numbers and Scandinavia.
  • The Norman conquest of England in the 11th century. The Normans were from a region in France called Normandy but the invaders also included Brettons and Norwegians. According to Wikipedia: “Following the conquest, many Anglo-Saxons, including groups of nobles, fled the country[102] for Scotland, Ireland, or Scandinavia.[103]” Another possibility for how my Scottish and Irish ancestors could have gotten those European and Scandinavian genes.

Fascinating no? All speculation of course but none-the-less it was really interesting uncovering possible scenarios for my genetic history. Currently DNA is of limited value for genealogy as the databases are relatively small. But as more testing is done, both on living individuals and ancient bones, the cumulative data will grow and be analyzed and we will one day be able to speak with certainty about our genetic origins.

I can’t wait for that day whether it is in my lifetime, my nieces and nephews, or their children.

Out of the Attic!

Out of the Attic!

You know the problem, an attic full of boxes stuffed with great great-grandma’s memorabilia. Nobody wants to throw them away, but nobody wants to deal with them either, because the task is just too daunting. The boxes haven’t been looked at in years so their treasures remain undiscovered and unappreciated. Large pieces of family history—lost. Well not necessarily. It turns out, with a good system in place, an archival project like this can be made manageable. Yes, you too, a mere mortal, can get your memorabilia out of those boxes, organize them in a way that makes them more accessible, and gear their storage for preservation rather than decay with a minimum of agony. I wouldn’t say it’s easy but it doesn’t have to be impossible. A little organization goes a long way here.

Completed archive projectDid she say organization? EEEEK! Well, don’t go running from the room just yet, I said a little organization. My first archive project was for my father. It involved over 3000 archives, that’s 7-8 big boxes of “stuff,” and while I wouldn’t call it fun, it was much easier and went much faster than I would ever have guessed. It took three weeks, doing all the work myself (by choice). Imagine if you could get one or two family members to lend a hand? My dad ended up with a bookcase full of archives that are carefully preserved and can be looked through with ease. He was thrilled! I discovered a multitude of treasures, including tidbits about his grandmother’s acting career that even he had forgotten. Was it worth the sore back and tired eyes? You betcha!

Below, I’ve outlined one way to do this task. No one method works for everyone so just use this as a guideline. My main goal here, is to get you started. Those deteriorating archives are calling your name!

  1. Step One: Procrastinate , procrastinate, procrastinate. But you’ve done that! So here you are, already at Step Two! Isn’t this going well?
  2. Locate all the boxes of stuff. Some may have worked their way to parent’s, children’s or sibling’s houses. If they are willing, you can consolidate the boxes for organizing and preserving and then redistribute them to the respective relatives when done. If not, work with the things you have.
  3. Pick a good time to do this. This project will take weeks not days to finish so plan for that.
  4. Pick a workplace, preferably a room with low traffic so you can spread the project out. Once you get going, that workplace is going to look like a bomb went off in it so keep that in mind. Think spare bedroom or a little used study.
  5. Bring the boxes into the workroom and peek into them, getting a general idea what kind of archives they are—big, little, bulky, thin—and how many there are. This will give you an idea what archival storage items you will need to buy. Don’t get carried away and start pulling things out—you’re not ready yet!
  6. Decide on an archival strategy. Look at all the archiving options and pick the ones that best serve your needs. Think about preservation concerns, best practices for handling archives, and storage options. Remember that part of this process is deciding where the archives will go after they are organized. That attic won’t do anymore. Ask yourself: “Do I want to be able to easily go through them?”, “Do I want to divide them into groups (putting all archives from one family together for example)?”, “How much good storage space do I have?”. Careful decision making here will reduce problems later on. To give you the idea: you might choose to put flat, thin documents into an archival-safe plastic sleeve (preserver) with an acid/lignin free piece of paper behind them. The plastic sleeves then go into albums or AlbumBoxes. Large, bulky items get put into archival boxes. All these get stacked off the floor on metal shelves.
    TWO CAUTIONS if you decide to categorize your archives by topic or person:

    • Make your system flexible. Many of your archives will belong to more than one category, marriage certificates for example, and it is almost impossible to predict which category will turn out to be the best one. When I did my own archives, I initially put all the original marriage certificates in a binder marked Marriages (I store my Xeroxed certificates that way, so this should work, right?) but it turned out that when I started doing research from these archives, I kept reaching for the person binders to find a marriage certificate. Obviously, my brain associated the originals more to persons than record types. Since each archive was in its own page, I was able to easily redistribute them to person binders. A flexible system also takes the pressure off initial decision-making.
    • It’s more important to store an archive properly than it is to get it in the right category. Bulky or heavy items should not be stored with thin, fragile ones.
  7. Buy or order enough archival supplies in advance to get you through at least half of the project. Buying in bulk saves money so the more you buy at first, the better off you are. Good archival supply stores will let you return unopened items. Also, ordering in advance lets you buy online, usually cheaper.
  8. Once you have your supplies, you can set up your workspace. This is a very personalized process but to here are some ideas to point you in the right direction:
    1. Start by pushing all the furniture to the edges of the room. This will give you the maximum amount of free space and believe me you’ll need it. A decent size collection can easily cover the floor of a 14’x14′ room! You have two options here: working directly on the floor or working at a table. Floors offer the most space to spread out (and believe me, you will spread out!) but can be very hard on the back and legs. If you choose to work at a table get the largest one you can find. If you don’t have a large table push two smaller ones together or consider renting one of the long collapsible ones. You need sufficient space for your immediate workspace and the piles of archives you will accumulate.
    2. To protect your documents and memorabilia, spread a clean white cotton sheet over your work area
    3. Position yourself right in the middle of the floor or table with the box of “grandma’s stuff” on one side, and the archive supplies on the other. Your “handedness” will influence which goes where. You want to achieve an assembly line process (big words for fast and efficient) so have everything AT HAND. By getting all the supplies within arms reach you won’t have to keep interrupting your task to go get something. Lay everything out in an organized way, within arms reach and leave it there until the project is done. If you have limited space and have to put everything away after each session, put it back the same way each new session. This way the task can become instinctual and, as such, faster. You know what I’m talking about—the disappearing wrapping paper scissors at Christmas time. Every time you need the scissors when wrapping gifts you have to search for them. How can that be when you haven’t moved from the chair? The answer is that you put them down in a different place each time, one that seems logical to you at the time but isn’t logical when you reach for them.
    4. Place a plastic garbage bag in the workroom and throw trash and unwanted items into it. DO NOT EMPTY THIS BAG UNTIL THE PROJECT IS COMPLETELY FINISHED! I’m not kidding folks, it is way too easy to lose track of things in a project of this size.
  9. Okay, your workspace is set up and you’re ready to go. Wait for the right day to start, one that isn’t too full. One where you’re feeling really “up.” Take a deep breath. Take another deep breath. Take one final deeeeep breath and… DIVE IN!\Carefully take one archive at a time from the box (making sure it’s fully supported) and access its condition. Do whatever archiving process you decided on to it and put it down. If you have chosen to sort your archives by category, place the archive in its correct pile and move to the next item. Do this over and over, until the box is empty and then get the next box. Again, here’s one way to do it:
    1. Take one item from the box and access its condition. If the condition is relatively good, very carefully unfold or unwrap it. Folds stress archives and so it’s best to store them unfolded when possible. If the item is very fragile, sit there staring at it trying to decide whether to risk shattering it by unfolding. I have been known to agonize over this (irreversible) decision for upwards of a half an hour! In the case of paper archives, it helps to know that, eventually, it will probably split at the folds anyway. If the document holds valuable information, I may decide that it is more important to have it readable and in pieces, than intact and folded. My best advice here is that you put aside the risky archives. When you are at the end of the organizing, look at them again and make you decision then, Leave the truly valuable archives for a professional conservationist to tackle. I generally start with the bulkiest archives first. Don’t ask me why, but that seem to make the job go faster.
    2. Carefully perform any minor conservation (unfold, brush off dust, unbend corners) WarningDo not get carried away here! Anything other than light dusting should be left to a professional conservator!!!
    3. Remember, sometimes an “item” is actually a collection of items, obituaries stored in an envelope or letters tied together, for example. If you can, always keep items with a shared provenance together.  If you have to separate them physically (each page of a letter in its own enclosure for example) link them by labeling the enclosures. Remember, it’s not just “a letter,” it’s “letters that Grandma saved.”
    4. If you have chosen to use enclosures, put the item into its sleeve or envelope and label the enclosure if necessary. Use a pencil to lightly write on paper enclosures and archival markers for labeling plastic ones. Keep markers well away from your papers lest you accidentally mar them. I place badly decayed paper archives in between two sheets of unbuffered acid free paper to leach as much acid out as possible.
    5. After processing, place the item in the appropriate pile. I usually only have about six piles initially, broad categories like The Walker Family and Photographs. There are three reasons to keep the initial number of groups small. First, subcategories usually only become truly apparent as you go through everything. Second, it is confusing to try and remember a large number of categories and usually slows the process down. Slow is bad. Third, it keeps the stuff contained for the bulk of the project. Contained is good.
    6. Once you empty all the boxes, go through the piles you have created one at a time, and subdivide each into smaller, more specific groupings—your Dad’s career for example. Breaking up the sorting turns one huge job into several smaller ones, which goes a long way to keeping the project manageable and your sanity intact!
    7. Finally, after subdividing a stack, go through the smaller piles and organize them in some logical way, chronologically for example, or career, then letters. I put the smaller groupings into their respective binders or boxes before starting on the next stack. This helps to contain the chaos.
  10. Label each container either by writing on it with pencil or applying archival quality labels. At a minimum you should number each to distinguish them from each other. If you want the archives to be easily accessible, you might want to give the containers descriptive titles and create an index for them. A good index will reduce the amount of handling the archives will suffer. You can do this by hand, on a word processor or in a spreadsheet file. Spreadsheets offer the flexibility to sort the index by container, person, or item and update if you move items to another container.
  11. Okay, you’ve finished organizing everything. All the boxes are labeled and stored, you’ve cleaned the room and put away all the tools, tables etc. for the last time.  Think your done? Well, almost. Remember that trash bag you’ve been diligently hanging on to? Your final task is to dump this bag out and reload it piece by piece to make absolutely sure you haven’t discarded anything valuable. Too tired? Feel like skipping this step? Don’t. Like I said in Step 9 it is way to easy to accidentally throw something out. I had a friend who organized his family papers and didn’t save the trash. To his great delight he discovered his grandfather’s Spanish American War enlistment papers and promptly, in the confusion of the project, threw them out. Lost forever! Take the time and go through the bag. You won’t regret it.

And that’s all there is to it. Not too bad all things considered. To help spur you on to organizing and preserving your own memorabilia let me leave you with this: Family heirlooms are perishable. Without proper preservation, they will eventually disappear and a part of history—your history—will be gone forever. That’s worth a little work don’t you think?

Long Term Storage

Long Term Storage

Introduction

Picking the right storage for your family heirlooms seems relatively straightforward—in theory anyway. Unfortunately, space, time and budget constraints often complicate the matter somewhat but it’s nothing you can’t handle! Before considering all the storage options available though, it’s important to understand what you are trying to accomplish with long term storage. Preservation is the goal—doing what you can to slow down the deterioration of precious family memories. Notice that I said slow down, not stop. Decay is as inescapable as death and taxes but there are many ways to effect the rate at which deterioration occurs.

So, to find out how to ease this destructive process lets start by looking at the things that cause deterioration. Careless handling, extremes of temperature and humidity, exposure to light, acidic environments, pollutants, friction, excessive pressure, lack of proper support and—yes, I have to say it—pests are all things that can harm your photographs, manuscripts, and ephemera. It goes without saying then, that a good storage environment shields your archives from all these damaging things as much as possible. I’ll steal from Hippocrates here and add “First, do no harm.” Make sure that whatever you do to your archives, it won’t be worse than if you had done nothing at all. That’s it, plain and simple. Keep these thoughts in your head at all times and you are sure to make good long term storage decisions. Just to be on the safe side though, and so you have some trivia to bore your friends with at parties, read on for the details of archival storage.

Storage Considerations

Access

One of the pivotal decisions you will make when choosing a long term storage system for your archives is how accessible your documents and memorabilia need to be.

To illustrate why this is an important decision, let’s imagine a shoe box full of great grandma Pearl’s love letters. On the one hand, unfolding items that have been folded for decades can cause the material (paper, cloth etc.) to break at the fold—sometimes even years later. Also, the area at the fold will probably not lay as flat as the rest of the item and will be more vulnerable to friction and pressure. On the other hand, constantly unfolding and refolding items, pulling them from and stuffing them into tight envelopes can be equally harmful. If the letters are to be infrequently viewed the storage solution might be to substitute an acid free, buffered box for the old shoe box but put the letters in the box “as is.” If they will be accessed often, however, they might be safer, unfolded in a clear, plastic sleeve (for readability) inside an acid free box or binder. Get the idea?
If you do not expect to go through your archive boxes more than, say, once every few years, storage can be vastly simplified and yes, significantly less expensive. If, however, you, or anyone in your family is a genealogist, historian, or just actively interested in your family history you should assume that you will want relatively easy access to your family papers. Since any handling contributes to deterioration so you will need to take special precautions for family papers that are going to be viewed often.

Seldom Handled Items

  • Swap generic boxes for archival quality containers (see Standards below)
  • Letters etc. in reasonably good condition can be left in their original envelopes, folded items left folded.
  • Putting every item in its own protective sleeve its not as necessary. You should still sleeve items that are crumbling, torn, fading, or need to be separated because of their high acidity.
  • When a new enclosure is required, paper sleeves or folders can be used instead of clear enclosures.
  • Boxes are a better storage option than binders. They offer greater protection from pollutants and light. Archival quality file boxes are fine.

Frequently Handled Items

Rule #1. Even though you plan to access these archives often, it is still important that you do everything you can to minimize the amount of handling they are subjected to. Soooo…

  • Store the boxes where they can be easily accessed without having to move every box every time you need something.
  • Label all boxes and index their contents so you don’t have to dig through every item in every box to find what you want. Remember, the better your index is the happier your family papers are.
  • Pick enclosures and boxes that allow you to either view without removal (clear sleeves) or remove with a minimum of pulling, snagging and flexing.
    • Boxes for two dimensional items should be either clamshell or drop front or a combination of lidded boxes and folders so archives can be lifted out easily and without bending.
    • Put flat items into enclosures. Clear sleeves are optimal because they allow contents to be viewed without removing thus minimizing friction on the archive and protect it against oils and acids from your hands. If you use opaque sleeves be sure the enclosure opening is large enough to allow easy removal of its contents.
    • Folders, albums and binders should lie flat when open.
  • Sleeved items (especially if they will be kept in binders) should be fully supported so that when you pick up the item, or turn the binder page, the archive itself will flex as little as possible. Place acid free pressboard, card stock paper or plastic stiffeners in the sleeve, behind the archive to support it.
  • Removing items from their original envelopes means that you now risk accidentally separating the various parts of the archive. Be sure that you mark the archive (carefully, unobtrusively and only with pencil!), or its enclosure to permanently identify the parts as belonging to each other. Example, “Letter-Smith to Carlson 2/9/1896 p. 1 of 4,” 2 of 4 … If the items are in binder pages, you can stack the pages and then run a piece of white, cotton string though one of the holes. Remember to tie the string loosely so the pages will be able to flip individually in the binder.
  • If you plan to have an archive out and exposed for long periods, to do research from for example, read the section below on light and take appropriate precautions.

The Storage Environment

I’m guessing that you don’t have a dedicated environmentally controlled, hepa filtered, dust free, UV free storage room for your family papers. Heck, some museums don’t even have that. Still, your cherished family papers and memorabilia will love you and lead happier, longer lives if you put some thought into picking the best storage environment possible- even if you can’t afford the $2,000 hygrothermograph to monitor your humidity. Here’s what you need to think about:

Humidity – Excessively moist environments encourage mold and pests and can speed up chemical processes that cause decay. Very dry air can desiccate paper and other materials causing them to become brittle.

  • Avoid obviously damp areas like basements, laundry rooms and bathrooms (well, you never know). Store your boxes at least 6 inches off the floor in case of minor flooding and to allow air to pass under the boxes. If you must store in a humid area, keep the storage shelves at least 12 inches from the wall and consider getting a dehumidifier. If you do get a dehumidifier, be sure you have a way to drain it directly into a nearby sink or drain to avoid overflow problems.
  • Avoid potentially dry areas like attics and furnace rooms. If you live in a desert state (you know you do if half your paycheck goes to buying moisture lotions) you might consider investing in a small humidifier.
  • If you do opt for a humidifier or dehumidifier, make sure that the machine you buy (or its location) doesn’t cause problems in the other direction by over drying or humidifying the room. If your really concerned with providing an optimal environment, a decent hygrometer can be purchased for $50-90. Be sure to measure the humidity several times a day over several weeks so that you can see how stable the relative humidity is.

Ideal humidity levels: 35-45% RH with no fluctuations
Practical: As close to 30-50% RH and as stable as you can possibly get

Temperature – Extremes of temperature (cold or hot) or large fluctuations in temperature (rapid changes from hot to cold or cold to hot) are harmful.
Avoid:

  • Attics
  • Close proximity to air conditioning and heat vents or furnaces
  • Garages.
  • Direct light or bright rooms

Ideal: 40-50° for photographs and negatives, 50-70° for other materials
Practical: Follow the Golden Rule: Don’t put your papers anywhere you wouldn’t want to live! Dark closets inside the house work very well.

Light – UV rays fade and dry archives and can drastically speed deterioration. Store your family papers away from direct sunlight and preferably in a room with no windows, skylights etc. Closets are fine for this. Florescent lights are the most damaging type of artificial light so resist the urge to use energy saving florescent bulbs in your storage and viewing areas. Plain old incandescent bulbs are best. If you have only florescent lighting or a windowed storage area, consider getting UV screening film to cover the light tube or window. This is an extra expense but may be well worth it.

Ideal: No light at all in the storage area.
Practical: No direct light, low ambient light, incandescent rather than florescent bulbs, opaque, fully surrounding containers.

Air Quality

  • Air pollution (airborne chemicals, soot etc.) is increasingly a concern – even for those living in less urban areas. Protect against pollution by using containers that fully enclosed their contents and store away from windows, drafts and outside vents (in a closet for example). Containers that have a 3% calcium or magnesium carbonate buffer additive are more resistant to acidity and offer additional protection against the detrimental effects of poor air quality.
    CAUTION: Although buffering is commonly used, it not appropriate for all archives. Anything that comes in direct contact with color, albumen, cyantotype, or dry transfer photographs and protein fibers (silk and wool), for example, should be unbuffered. Remember, an object (a dress for example) may be made of many different materials. When in doubt, use unbuffered products for anything that comes in direct contact with the item.
  • Wood and paint emit vapors that can be harmful to archives (a process called off-gassing). Storage shelving should be metal with a baked on enamel paint and open around the back and sides. Open shelves allow the air to circulate around your containers and carry off any toxic fumes. The test? Put your nose to the shelf. If you can smell it, it’s emitting potentially harmful fumes! Now for the good news: The gray metal shelves you find at your local hardware or discount store perfectly fit the bill.
  • Believe it or not, organic materials (paper, wood, natural dyes and inks etc.) can emit toxic vapors as a part of the decay process. Paper containers and enclosures breathe better than plastic and dissipate any harmful emissions away from the archives. Clear plastic enclosures are fine as long as they are open on at least one side. Although many respected institutions use encapsulation, I do not recommend it or any other type of air tight enclosure for general use.

Pressure – To minimize pressure on archives:

  • Do not overstuff storage boxes, folders, envelopes or binders.
  • Size all containers and enclosures generously so that papers don’t get pinched or bent.
  • Store heavy items separately from light or delicate items and 3 dimensional items separate from flat ones.
  • Use sturdy boxes that won’t collapse or bend.
  • If you need to stack boxes make sure you purchase ones with very sturdy corners and don’t stack them so high that the bottom boxes begin to collapse. Put the heaviest boxes on the bottom, lightest on top and line the corners up so the sturdy corners are taking the weight, not the weaker middle areas.
  • Ideally, binders and albums are best stored flat and unstacked. If you store them vertically make sure the spine and cover are sturdy enough to hold the pages vertical. Make sure the album is full enough that the pages within aren’t sagging.
  • Never put curled or cockled documents, photographs or negatives into enclosures or folders where they will be pressed flat! Ever! Doing this will very probably cause the item to split or, in the case of photographs and negatives, cause the image or support to crack. This is true even for mildly curled objects. Store them loose in a properly sized box.
  • Never store sleeved items unprotected. Instead, put them into boxes, folders inside boxes, binders or Album Boxes.

Acid – Most paper products manufactured after the mid-eighteen hundreds have a high acid and lignin (wood pulp impurities) content. Acid is one of the greatest contributors to deterioration. Be sure that anything in intimate contact with your archive is acid/lignin free. Acid leaches from most acidic to least acidic (this is what causes the brown stains you sometimes find on old paper items) so be sure that acidic items prevented from contacting other, possibly less acidic items. Depending on the chemical content of your archive, acid neutralizing sprays can actually damage your archive so it’s safest not to use them.

Archival Storage Supplies

First, A Word About Archival Quality

Unfortunately there is no standard definition for the terms “archival,” “archive or photo-safe,” and “archival quality” which means that anyone can use these words to describe their product. Additionally, even seemingly safe products like acid free or lignin free interact differently depending on their quality. Confusing and, if you don’t mind my saying, darned depressing. Fortunately there is hope. Here are some ways to ensure that the product you buy will be safe for your long term storage needs:

  • Buy from trusted archival suppliers like those that sell to libraries, museums, archives or historical societies. By necessity, they have high standards for their products. For a short list of some good vendors consult the post: Quality Archival Supplies.
  • Some local museums sell archival boxes. They buy in bulk and sell what they don’t need. They aren’t likely to advertise so call them to see. If it’s good enough for a museum, its good enough for you.
  • If not buying from a trusted source
    • Check the packaging for a pH level or the phrase “PAT Certified” or “PAT Passed.” If you don’t find either of these, ask the salesperson to check their order catalogue description or go home and look the product up online before purchasing.
      Definition: PAT stands for Photographic Activity Test. Developed by The Image Performance Institute it predicts possible interactions between photographic images and the enclosures in which they are stored. Special detector strips are placed in contact with samples of storage materials which are then artificially aged using temperature and humidity. Materials which causes substantial fading or staining on the detectors can be singled out as harmful to photographs. The PAT is also used to test the components of enclosures, such as adhesives, inks, paints, labels, and tapes. This test, now the ANSI standard, is currently the only standard available for determining how a particular storage material is going to interact with your photograph. PAT certification does NOT guarantee that the product it certifies will preserve your archive forever, or even for a known period of time. It does, however, give the humble archiver a sound place from which to start making his or her long term storage choices. (Burge, Daniel M. “Just What is the Photographic Activity Test?” Picture Framing Magazine, Feb.1996)
    • Make sure that all the materials in the product meet the standards given in Standards for Archival Quality Materials post.

Boxes

Archival boxes come in every size and shape imaginable, from the tiniest artifact container to boxes large enough to house newspapers and voluminous 18th century court dresses. Rest assured, no matter how unusual your family memorabilia is (we’ve all seen Antiques Roadshow) there is a quality box to protect it.

Quality containers can be pressboard, corrugated cardboard or plastic. One of the decisions you will face in your quest for the perfect storage solution for your archives is whether to buy paper (cardboard) or plastic containers. When of good archival quality, both have their merits but my general preference leans toward paper for boxes for the following reasons:

  • As mentioned above, plastic containers trap armful emissions released by the archives themselves.
  • Plastic boxes can trap humidity or prevent a sufficiently humid environment. Remember – too dry is as bad as too wet.
  • Cardboard boxes absorb moisture.
  • Buffered containers actively absorb pollutants

The choice is strictly personal based on your needs, budget and preferences but be sure what you choose meets the standards listed above.

Common Configurations

  • Flat Box – longer and wider than it is deep/tall.
    • Lidded Box – box with a lid that removes completely.
      • Deep lid – the sides of the lid completely cover the sides of the box
      • Shallow lid – the sides of the lid come only part-way (usually a third or less) down the sides of the box.
    • Clamshell Box – box with a hinged lid that is attached along one side. The box opens like a book and when open, the lid lies flat next to the box.
    • Drop Front Box – lidded box where one side of the box (not the lid) drops outward and lies flat. This enables the contents to easily slide out.
  • Vertical/Document Case – taller than it is long or wide. For holding file folders in an upright position. Can be lidded or clamshell, fiberboard or corrugated. Commonly sized to fit standard or legal file folders.
  • Artifact/Object Box – comes with dividers or smaller boxes inside so you can safely store oddly shaped items together without touching. Can be lidded or clamshell. Use in conjunction with acid free tissue or archival batting to store any assortment of smaller objects you can think of: antique Christmas tree ornaments, grandma’s knick knacks, small quilled decorations, Uncle Joe’s snow globe collection etc. This box is one of the most versatile storage solutions available so keep it in the front of your mind.
  • File/Storage Box- corrugated box, lidded or clamshell. Can come as flat, precut cardboard that you assemble yourself by folding along scored lines. These look like the file boxes you find at office supply stores but are of archival quality.
  • BinderBox, Binder in a Box, AlbumBox, Preservation Box/Album – a clamshell box that has binder rings inside – usually 3 D-rings. These combine the viewablitilty of albums or binders with the full protection of a box.
  • Metal Edged Box – non-corrugated boxes with metal supports on the exterior corners to add strength to the structure. Although the metal edges don’t guarantee that the box won’t collapse (and lack of them doesn’t mean it will collapse) they are a quality feature and worth the extra money. Can be flat, vertical or artifact box.
  • Presentation boxes – usually clamshell, these boxes are made of thicker materials and have a more attractive exterior. They are also considerably more expensive than fiberboard or corrugated boxes.

Specialty Boxes

These boxes are sized to fit specific shaped items but don’t let that keep you from using them for other types of archives. Be creative when looking for storage solutions.

  • Photograph – sized to fit standard size photographs. They can come as kits with packets of acid free paper photograph and negative envelopes. High capacity photo boxes have several compartments for photo envelopes and can hold 1600+ photos.
  • Carte de Vista – sized to fit Carte de Vista photographs.
  • Cabinet Card – sized to fit Cabinet Card photographs.
  • Negative boxes – boxes sized to fit film negatives: 120mm, 35 mm strips etc. Kits come with box and paper negative sleeves.
  • Slide files – slide files are as wide as normal slides and hold about … slides. Slide file boxes enclose slide files as a measure of added protection.
  • Slide Cases – plastic or metal cases with 35mm size compartments or slots inside
  • Slide Cabinets – plastic or metal cabinets with slide size drawers
  • Glass lantern – sized to fit glass lantern slides with vertical slots inside to hold the slides upright and away from each other.
  • Postcard – sized to fit postcards.
  • CD/DVD – sized to fit digital media.
  • Video – sized either for VHS or Beta cassettes.
  • Newspaper – fits a standard sized newspaper.
  • Textile – sized to fit either rolled or folded textiles.

Albums, Binders

These are just what they seem, ringed binders or albums that hold clear, preserver pages. Albums can come with or without cover boxes and come in all kinds of colors and designs. Commonly sized to hold 8 1/2″ x 11″ pages or 12″ x 12″ pages. Make sure the album is larger (all the way around) than your biggest page. If you need to save money, regular office notebooks can be used since the archive itself will be protected in an archival-safe plastic page and won’t come in contact with the binder itself.
Caution: DO NOT buy the albums with self-stick or “magnetic” pages – they are disastrous for long term storage. The “magnetic” quality of the adhesive often goes bad over time and both the protective plastic film and the page can become permanently glued to the archive. This type of page can irrevocably ruin your photos and manuscripts.

Enclosures

Made of paper, Tyvek®, polyester, polypropylene, or polyethylene. enclosures encase individual items. Enclosures can be used for virtually any flat objects: ephemera, manuscripts and images of all kinds and sizes. Ideally, they should be sized large enough so they won’t bend or put pressure on the archive within and small enough that they don’t let the document bang around inside the sleeve. Bigger is better in this case. Glad ziplock bags are 100% polyethylene and are an inexpensive alternative to specialty bags.
Clear plastic enclosures vary in their clarity. Read the product descriptions carefully when making your choices.

Common Configurations

  • Envelopes – sealed on three sides with a flap covering the open end.
  • Plain sleeves – sealed on three sides with one side open.
  • L sleeves, L-velopes – sealed on two sides and open on two sides allowing easier removal of the contents.
  • 4 Flap Negative Wrappers – made of paper and shaped roughly like the Red Cross emblem. The negative is placed in the center and the flaps are folded down over it. Works well for large format negatives and glass lantern slides.
  • Binder/album pages – plastic pages with holes punched along one side for insertion into ringed albums or binders. Binder pages will either be undivided ( single slot, commonly 8″ x 10″, 8 1/2″ x 11″ or 12″ x 12″) or divided (multiple slots created with heat sealing seams) and come in several types:
    • Negative pages – sized to fit various sized single or strip negatives and usually made of softer plastic to prevent scratching delicate emulsions. Negative pages can also come in hanging format with a file hanger running through a pocket across the top of the page. The page then hangs like a hanging file folder.
    • Photograph – sized to fit 3″ x 5″, 4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″, or panorama prints.
    • Slide – sized to fit various slide formats.
  • Encapsulation – 2 plastic sheets in between which the archive is placed. The sheets are then sealed around all four edges. Although permanently sealed, the enclosure can be opened, if need be, without damaging the archive. Many museums use these for severely degraded archives but there is controversy about whether trapped humidity and toxic emissions is in itself harmful. For this reason, I do not use personally encapsulation.
  • Lamination – I only include lamination to distinguish this highly destructive process from the more benign encapsulation. Laminating plastics glue DIRECTLY to the archive and the process is IRREVERSIBLE. As if that weren’t bad enough, the adhesives and plastics used for laminating are NOT archival and will yellow, stain and bubble over time. Never, NEVER laminate an archive! Got it? Goooooood.

Tissue Paper – buffered or unbuffered depending on the archive. Sold in sheets or rolls. Used to pad or protect objects.

Paper Sheets – used as a background, support or protection for paper documents or ephemera.

  • Dye free, unbleached is best.
  • pH of 7.0-8.5 depending on your need.
  • When used as a support, you will need stiff cardstock paper.

Standards for Archival Materials

This list is meant for the layperson preservationist. It hopefully will give you a sense of the core elements needed to safely store of your family memorabilia. The aim is to give you enough knowledge that you can be an educated buyer when purchasing archival products and also enable you to improvise safe storage if you wish. One bit of advice: If you cannot afford to have all your products of archival quality spend your money on the products that will come in direct contact with the items themselves first. For example: get good acid free/lignin free buffered folders or enclosures to put the papers in, and then put the folders or enclosures into a regular box.

Paper products should be lignin free and have a pH of 7.0-7.9 (unbuffered) or 8.0-8.5 (buffered).  Buffering should be 2-3% calcium or magnesium carbonate.

  • Buffered or unbuffered acid and lignin free corrugated cardboard
  • Buffered or unbuffered acid and lignin free folder weight paper
  • Buffered or unbuffered acid and lignin free paper

Tissue – should have a pH of 7.0 -7.9 (unbuffered) or 8.0-8.5 (buffered) and be lignin free.  Buffering should be a 3% magnesium or calcium carbonate.

Plastics for either containers or enclosures should be ONLY 100%:

  • Polyester (also called Mylar, Mylar D or Mellinex 516, this material is the best plastic to enclose photographs)
  • Polyethylene
  • Polypropylene
  • Tyvek®
  • Acrylic (for cases, and framed pictures)
  • Polystyrene (cases)

These are not uncommon plastics so even if you choose to buy plastic containers from the local discount store, be sure that they are made from one of the above listed materials.  If not listed on the label, do a little research on the manufacturer’s website or call the company. No other plastic is acceptable for long term storage!  Other types of plastics can lift ink from documents, adhere to paper, and cause irreversible staining on textiles. Not convinced? How about this: Have you ever bought one of those inexpensive plastic cases for your car registration? Remember going to swap out the new registration and finding that the old one was solidly stuck inside the pocket? After five minutes of prying you finally got it out but half the print was left on the inside of the pocket. Now, picture that happening to your great grandfather’s Spanish American War muster papers!
Additional note: Plastic enclosures for photographs should NOT have any coatings such as UV protectors.

Fabrics

  • 100% unbleached muslin with no sizing (permanent press) chemicals added
  • 100% linen or silk
  • Clean solid white sheet of 100% cotton or 50/50 cotton/polyester. Sheet should be washed twice (even if new) with a mild, dye and perfume free detergent.  Do not use any kind of bleach. On the second wash, double rinse to ensure that all the detergent has been rinsed out. Using old pillowcases is not recommended because of the level of body oils they are exposed to.
  • 100% Polyester – no sizing
  • 100% cotton flannel
  • Tyvek®

Cleaning Cloths should have NO ADDED CHEMICALS.

  • Tyvek® blend like Dust Bunny® or Dust Wizard®
  • Any of the fabrics listed above

Foam and batting

  • Polyethylene
  • Ethafoam (polyethylene)
  • CFC free Polystyrene
  • Polyester
  • Cotton or cotton/polyester blend

Metal

  • Stainless steel
  • Steel or alloy with baked enamel or powder coated surface
