I have an album of Civil War era CDV's. The CDV's have been glued
onto the pages. Is there any way to unglue the CDV's without
damaging them. We had considered steaming, but wanted to check with
a professional first. We also have some nitrate film negatives which
have rolled up on themselves. The negatives date from 1898 and were
taken during the Spanish-American War. Is there any way to flatten
these so prints can be made and the film properly disposed.
