Tips for Archiving Family Audio


The NY Times has a new series on archiving your family history.  Readers sent in their questions to Bertram Lyons, the archivist for the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress.  The first part of the series deals with preserving family audio.  The topics included in this part are 1. Converting analogue to digital- he tells you how to find the right vendor. 2. Preserving fragile home records-how to handle them and where to send them for preservation. 3. Converting cassettes and LPs to digital- how to do it yourself with available products for the consumer.  4. The Lifespan of CDs and DVDs- nothing lasts forever, not even your Rick Astley CDs.  Go to the NY TImes to read more.  Next week, preserving film and photos. Can’t wait.
