How to Properly Store Antique Documents

Hire Professional Guardians

It may sound silly, but an armed guard or two couldn't hurt when it comes to keeping your grandparents' marriage certificate safe, right? Consider renting a safe deposit box at a bank. Although the men in black probably are more concerned with guarding all that cash, you'll still get the same protection for your documents. Typically, the metal boxes aren't expensive (about $30 to $75 a year) and have the added bonus of being housed in a bank vault that's pretty unlikely to be damaged by a fire or burglars.
