Hi my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. I will need a list of the items - books= titles, publisher, number of ages, author and illustrators to give you values. On newspapers the name is ***** ***** date. On Shirley Temple items I will need to see photos of items and any markings on the items as to who made them and years if present. On manifests the names of ships, what the manifests are called and dates. This information will give me the background needed to give you an accurate value on each item. I look forward to helping you. Seeing you have many items we can take one section at a time if that makes it easier for you like books first then on to newspapers etc.... To post photos click on the paperclip , file upload or add files button and follow the prompts. If you would like to do a few items of each category you may pick a few to get an idea of the values if you like also. Completely up to you. I look forward to helping you Tanya
