The South Carolina Historical Society presents "What's in Your Attic?"
DATE OF EVENT
"What's in Your Attic?" Wednesday, Nov. 18th at 10:00 AM
The South Carolina Historical Society is home to the largest private manuscript collection in the state, meaning we hold personal papers, records of philanthropic and social organizations, parish registers, business records, and much, much more that all pertain to South Carolina and its rich history. These materials were donated to the society by organizations and individuals who wanted to ensure South Carolina’s historic record is preserved for and accessible to future generations.
Join our archival staff as we discuss the benefits and procedures of donating materials to an archival repository. Attendees will learn how to navigate the donation process, which questions to ask, and what factors to consider when giving their family’s papers to an institution.
