We have utilized Lynsey’s expertise in processing a photograph collection of over 6,500 images, none of which were in order and all in need of preservation. Her knowledge and skill was instrumental in not only processing and making this collection usable, but also preserving it for generations to come.
Lynsey is an excellent source of information and support for small and large museums and historical societies. I have known Lynsey from her position at the O. Winston Link Museum in Roanoke, in my role as founder and curator of the Evelyn Lahman History Museum at the Rural Retreat Depot. Our museums have done co-promotion of events, and we are especially grateful for Lynsey’s and the Link Museum’s support for our efforts over the years.Small museums in particular suffer from lack of resources. Organizers and volunteers typically have no experience in museum organization and management. Donations, that are very important and hold special memories for the donors, may be damaged or lost due to lack of proper handling techniques. Further, as time passes, proper attribution becomes impossible because of lack of record-keeping. An ideal resource for a small museum is a person who has experience in museum organization, record-keeping, logistics, and donor management including fund raising. Lynsey is such a resource. She has recommended several free software applications that enable us to keep track of donated items and their donors, and furthermore be able to express these artifacts in online presentations. She is an all-around source of support that can be utilized to whatever extent your budget allows. Lynsey has my highest recommendation.
Lynsey has a unique blend of skill sets. She has an excellent background and education in related disciplines. I’ve worked with her for over the last two years and have been impressed with her creative vision, attention to detail, and extensive knowledge. If customers or clients have questions she is relentless in pursuing all avenues resulting in high customer satisfaction.
Lynsey has a true passion and knowledge about history. She is prompt to respond to any requests and always exceeds my expectations when producing requested information.
