[BKARTS] advice needed



I have a hand-painted birth certificate from 1797 that was framed,
probably in the 1800's. It's a family heirloom, but it's also a nice
little fragment of history. Unfortunately, it's got some damage and I
want to prevent more. The little creatures that eat paper have put
some holes in it, and I'm afraid to take it out of the frame to deal
with it. What are my options? Are the any specialists in Philadelphia
who could help me? Should I have it appraised before I do anything
with it?

Thanks for any help offered.

Erzebet
