I would like to preserve my father's obituary. Can you give me some suggestions on the best way to do this?

Thank you,

Hi Peggy! First let me say I'm sorry about the loss of your father. Do you mean to keep the obituary announcement from the newspaper from yellowing? I know you can do it with club soda and milk of magnesia. Here is a site that offers several ideas(personally, I'd have more than one copy before trying anything). www.lisajohnson.com/.../clippings.htm I hope this helps.

My mother laminates EVERYTHING, and quite cheaply by using clear contact paper.

Sorry to hear about your fathers passing. We were given laminated (harder than normal laminate) copies of the obiturary from the funeral home.

If it was recent they should have them. But if it was a while back you can just laminate them as normal.

Take it to a store that does laminating. My local UPS Store does it at a very reasonable price, based on the size. I've gotten all my pasteboard cards (insurance, Medicare, etc.) laminated there.

I would suggest using Archival Mist to prevent it from yellowing. Target carries it in the scrapbooking section. Also, you might want to store it in a small, acid-free photo album to further protect it. You could also scan it and store an image on the computer.

Hi Peg

Sorry about the loss of your father - that's tough. Our local paper carries the obituaries on line and I print them up - you get a permanent record of the obit and the paper is less likely to yellow with age.

My sister just died and i am looking for the company that preserves the obituary. I had it done for my parents years ago and can't find the address anywhere.
