Learn how to save Family documents and heirlooms

Celebrate Preservation Week and Learn How to Save Your Family Heirlooms

Memories and treasures should last a lifetime and be passed on to future generations. Learn low-cost ways to preserve family archives and how to preserve scrapbooks through two webinars offered during National Preservation Week, April 27-May 3. They are offered in conjunction with the American Library Association’s Association for Library Collections & Technical Services.

The first presentation, “Low-Cost Ways to Preserve Family Archives,” will be offered Tuesday, April 29, at 2:00 p.m. in Rodman Public Library’s Children’s Program Room. Most of us are creators and collectors of something we value or enjoy, such as family papers, photographs, cookbooks, or postcards. They are a big part of who we are and what we do. We think about passing these collections on to our families, even our communities.

What can we do to protect our collectables from damage even if we don’t think we have a perfect place to keep them? Learn about possible risks from handling and the environment and practical, inexpensive ideas to keep collections safe to help ensure what you have can be shared for many years to come.

The second presentation, “How to Preserve Scrapbooks,” will be offered on Thursday, May 2, at 2:00 p.m. in Rodman Public Library’s Children’s Program Room. Scrapbooks have been used by families and organizations for many years to save clippings, photographs, and programs. They can be challenging to preserve since they often contain a diversity of materials. This webinar will explain some of the common problems associated with long-term preservation of scrapbooks, how to identify problem materials in older scrapbooks and what to do about them, and how to identify the best materials to use in creating new scrapbooks.

Anyone interested in preserving their family’s heirlooms are invited to attend. The programs are free and open to the public. Please call Rodman Public Library at 330-821-2665, ext. 101 for further information.

Century old home rendered a total loss in Atwater

Fire destroys Atwater home

Ravenna Record-Courier Published: February 17, 2014 3:00AM

A century-old home on state Route 183 in Atwater was rendered a total loss after a fire late Saturday morning.

No one was injured in the blaze at 772 State Route 183, which was reported to the Atwater Fire Department at 11:40 a.m., Assistant Fire Chief Jesse Baughman said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and no damage estimate was immediately available, Baughman said. Three pets, including a dog and two cats, died in the fire, he said.

A resident reported that he turned on the oven, then left the house to feed the animals in his barn. Soon after, passersby “stopped and pounded on the door because they saw flames coming from the house,” Baughman said.

By the time firefighters arrived at 11:47 a.m., the house was “fully involved” on the northwest corner of the structure, he said.

According to the Portage County Auditor’s Office, the home was owned by Gary and Patricia Allen and was built in 1901. The property was appraised at $165,000.

Firefighters from the Deerfield, Edinburg, Randolph and Lexington fire departments also responded to the scene, Baughman said.
