“County Clerk’s Archives Division hosts annual event”

MANALAPAN, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is reminding residents and visitors that Preservation Day 2018 will take place on Wed., April 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the County Clerk’s Archives Division, which is located on the lower level of the Monmouth County Library Headquarters at 125 Symmes Dr. in Manalapan.

This event is being held during the American Library Association’s Preservation Week which helps to raise awareness of the need for preservation of both personal and public historical collections.

“Our Archives Division’s Annual Preservation Day is a great opportunity to learn about the history and importance of preservation from some of the best archivists in New Jersey,” said Clerk Hanlon.

During the duration of the event, residents and visitors are offered the service of having up to three photos scanned and saved to a complimentary CD, free of charge.

At 10 a.m., Monmouth County Archivist Gary D. Saretzky will give a presentation on preserving family photographs.

A tour of the Monmouth County Archives facility will then begin at 1:15 p.m.

Lastly, at 2 p.m., Michael Andrec, Archivist from the Ukrainian History and Education Center, will give a seminar titled “Preservation and Playback of Audiotape.”

“I encourage Monmouth County visitors and tourists to bring their family and friends to celebrate Preservation Week and to gain insight into how they can preserve their personal records and precious family memories,” said Clerk Hanlon.
