What If I Hate My Grandma?

One South Carolina conservator asks us to treat our family records as if they were old women suffering from osteoporosis and stinking of Bengay.

"Would you keep her in the attic or basement?" Bennett asked. "If it's comfortable for us, it will be comfortable for your collection." [Link]
