The Edmond Genealogical Society will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 17at the LDS Church, 1351 E. 33rd Street in Edmond to hear and discuss a program on framing. 

Their program, Photo Preservation and Framing, will be presented by Kristy Duarte, the manager of Framed in the Village framing shop in Oklahoma City. Framed in the Village is Oklahoma’s only Master Certified Picture Framer and framing gallery. To reach that status requires a superior dedication to quality and a commitment to every aspect of the framing business. 

Duarte’s program will discuss and demonstrate the many options available to preserve and display your treasures. She will showcase techniques used in preserving and framing antique and fragile family photographs and other memorabilia items and how best to feature them in your home. All good things can be made even better and proper framing can enhance your artwork and special memorabilia, she says, and your items can be encased in such a way that looks beautiful and can be preserved for generations, turning a neat document or item into a family heirloom.

They have thousands of different types of frames, display cases, and shadow boxes to display preserved items. You can frame anything from your children’s artwork, special awards, jerseys, military memorabilia, canvases, cross stitches, embroidery, paper prints, photos and more. Everything is done to the highest preservation standards available, they say.


The July program will feature Helen Lehman, past director of the Family History Center in Oklahoma City. Lehman will present Migration Trails.  

Genealogical research assistance is available at 5:30 p.m. prior to the meetings. For more information, visit Meetings are always open to the public.
