*"Photo albums, home movies, hand-written letters, an unused old computer
with important family documents still stored on it: as precious as these
items may be, they'll last only as long as the paper, videotape, or hard
drive they're on. To make matters worse, they're often stored in attics and
basements--the worst possible environments for preservation. We explore
high and low tech ways to protect and store family memorabilia, and the
smartest way to migrate different materials to digital formats."*
