The first in a series of three workshops on community and family history preservation, the Museo del Westside and Esperanza Peace and Justice Community Archives present Historias Familiares, a virtual workshop on caring for family photographs, documents and memories.

Attendees will learn practical, budget-conscious solutions for taking care of family historical materials by certified archivist and Museo del Westside co-curator Donna Guerra.

The workshop will include guidance for protective storage of a wide assortment of archival materials, including photographs, documents, leather items, clothing and digital files.

Those who sign up beforehand will receive a three-minute window at the workshop to showcase an item and receive advice on how to best care for it. San Antonians can either tune in to the workshop on Zoom or watch via Facebook, YouTube or Twitter.

Free, 11 a.m. Saturday, March 13,
