You’ve inherited several boxes of papers, mementos, and miscellaneous stuff from a relative, or you have your own pile of personal effects to sort. How do you decide what’s important enough to keep? What might be historically significant years down the line? What are you going to do with it all if you ever get through it?

Find the answer to these questions at the “Sorting for History” class being presented by the Morrison County Historical Society. Museum staff will explain how they sort through large collections and arrange and store items so they can be easily accessed.
