Most commonly they consist of newspaper clippings detailing major events or catastrophes; images of notable people and places; copies of important paperwork such as deeds, laws, or certificates; small momentos that present a significance to the time like jewelry, heirlooms, toys, souvenirs, or ticket stubs; videos of local events; letters of historical record; journals and memoirs; and so much more.
