Advice from Cheryl Jamison

I talked to award-winning cookbook and travel writer Cheryl Jamison last night about this project. She advised me to make sure to photocopy any legible recipe cards. She emphasized the importance of capturing handwriting from family members, and wow, that was something I hadn't imagined being able to do, but of course it's possible! It will add so much to the family memories to have handwriting in there. Cheryl also advised me to store the cards in an archive-safe box to protect them from further deterioration. Great advice!
