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.
We remember with excitement all of the many projects we completed for clients over the past month. Thinking of all of the joy that was brought to many homes when families received the gift of memories.
Here are some of the interesting projects from last month: Jamie had a VHS of her social studies project from school when she interviewed her grandparents. Now she wants to gift the digital files to her mother and aunt.
