Province announces recovery services for heirlooms damaged by flooding

The province has announced recovery services will be available for heirloom photos and documents damaged by flooding. 

Government says staff with the Provincial Archives will recover documents like diaries, letters, maps, architectural drawings, and other paper-based items, as well as photos printed on paper, tin or glass. 

The service will aim to dry and stabilize documents, restore or copy originals, and mould remediation. 

Roger Melanson, the president of the Treasury Board, says this service will help New Brunswickers save what might have otherwise been lost in the historic flood. 

The province says most repairs of single documents, such as photos, will be provided at no charge, while larger projects will be quoted on a case-by-case basis.
