Fredericksburg Circuit Court Archives
January 25, 2018
We have volunteered at our local Courthouse archives, assisting in processing, stabilizing and rehousing documents over 200 years old.
This is a 218-year-old court document in desperate need of stabilization. There are tears, damage from folding, acidic damage and water damage.
The document was mended with heat-set mulberry fiber tissue. Following basic preservation standards, all alterations to the document are fully reversible. This document is now stable enough to be handled, examined, digitized, and stored for another century.
