Vicki has been declared the family memory keeper and she is buried under a collection of films and print photos. She brought them in to Leave A Legacy to start digitizing the family history to share with everyone else. We started with an 8mm film reel of when her neighborhood friends put on their own production of “You’re a Good Man,
Charlie Brown.” It’s quite something for a neighborhood to put on. See if you can identify Lucy, Snoopy, Sally and Charlie Brown. Next was digitizing a collection of photos, including a photo restoration. All it needed was a quick spot removal and adjusted contrast, but it made a big difference! Got to love those classic old hairstyles! Now they have their legacy digital media to keep.

David had over 1000 loose family photos sorted into 3 groups. Leave A Legacy helped him to complete his project by scanning them and making them into 3 different slideshows to share.

Teresa brought in a collection of 74 audio cassettes to be transferred to mp3 files. The cassettes are all recordings made of her dad reading classic books. He is very expressive. They have copies of all of the books to follow along. These mp3 files will now be played for his great grandchildren. What a great treasure to pass down through the generations.

Rob brought in some old 8mm silent family home movies to be transferred to digital files on a flash drive. They look to be to be late 6os and early 70s.
