Do you have a digital camera? Instead of photocopying pages from my family's genealogy books, I take photos with my digital Camera, then put them on my computer. It really depends how fragile the pages are, and how easily you can handle them.
I would find a good archival box to put the bible in.
Hope this helps
An aunt has found a Bible that belonged to my great-grandparents and
includes the signature of the Pastor who married them in 1915 and also
includes perhaps 100 years worth of family history. I have not had
the opportunity to see this Bible as I live in a different state. I
have several questions for the list:
1. Is it safe to photocopy the pages that include family history?
2. How should we preserve this Bible? My aunt says the pages are in
good shape but the binding is broken. I told her for now to wrap it
in acid free paper and put it in a ziplock freezer bag. Is this
right? What should we do for the long term?
