This is a diary started by my g-g-g grandfather in 1822. He hauled freight, did farming and doctored animals in Cambridge, Weston and Sudbury MA and recorded his jobs and wages in this book. He died in 1854 and his son continued entering until 1859.

A family album belonging to the same family as the diary picture - Wheeler/Russell. This page is of 4 brothers - friends of the family - who were all in the Civil War. The one in the lower right died in the battle of Antetam.

Great shots of some beautiful family treasures. Keep them safe from the elements and don't handle them too much. You might check with your local historical society or public library for hints and tips on preserving these documents. You might also consider the possibility of having some restoration work done on the diary. It is expensive but might buy you another 100,000 miles! Find a reputable shop and get references. Those treasures can't be replaced, as you well know.
