Denise inherited her first family archive from her grandmother & a trunk filled with photos, letters, documents, and lots of "miscellaneous stuff" and is now the caretaker of several family collections. She has adapted professional archival techniques to the family archive situation and shares her experiences at her website, and in her books and articles.
