Thanks to my visiting cousin SWEET SADIE For hosting this edition of WACKY Wednesday. It’s all about what to do with all the family history “stuff” you’ve been accumulating. We have two special guest tonight – Cyndi Ingle of Cyndi’s List.com and Melissa Barker, The Archive Lady. We’re considering things like the future of Online Trees. You can image we discuss everything from preserving items digitally as well as using preservation boxes to keep the 3-D items from being damaged over time.
