Savers of the Family Archives

We begin this month's newsletter with a very recent true story:

Betty, a Home Video Studio customer, brought in thousands of feet of film to be transferred to DVD. It was obvious from her packing, her careful labeling, and even the spreadsheet she used to classify everything that this collection was her pride and joy. Memories dating as far back as 1940 included birthdays, weddings, vacations, and school activities. Lo and behold, as the film was being prepared for transfer it was discovered that over half of it had literally turned to powder due to improper storage and the ravages of time. You can imagine the disappointment this customer felt! Don't let this happen to you!

At Home Video Studio we have a mission to protect your family's heritage and invaluable documents, in fact, our theme this year is "Savers of the Family Archives." We have seen the effects that natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and fires have on your life's legacy. We know what time and elements can silently do to your most valuable treasures. Take steps today and let us help you digitize all of your photos, videos, documents, mementos, and important papers to a more disaster-proof digital format whether that's CD, DVD or files onto a hard drive. Think of this as purchasing insurance. The value of preserving these precious items is priceless.

How do you get started? The first step is to get organized. Are your effects in order? Are your photos, videos, and/or film organized? Are they in random boxes, unmarked memory cards, on your cell phone, or your flip cam? Where are your important papers? Are they in one place? Don't forget that, as Savers of the Family Archives, we make house calls and can help you categorize your family's artifacts. In addition to all of the memories, there are some very practical documents and records that need to be safeguarded as well.

These might include:

  • Birth Certificates
  • Property titles
  • Citizenship papers
  • Military records
  • Social Security Cards
  • Bank accounts

  • Wills
  • Insurance policies
  • Passports
  • Powers of attorney
  • Marriage certificates
  • Family tree
When we are finished, you will have all the important artifacts that make up your life digitized and organized on a small, easy and convenient medium and stored in one safe place like a safety deposit box or a fireproof safe! Wouldn't that be comforting to know?

Another amazing benefit of this process is that you now have instant access to all the important items in your possession. You can retrieve your favorite photos and make copies for loved ones. You can enjoy videos and film at the touch of a button, and, of course, your personal records are now preserved indefinitely, ready for uncomplicated access in case of an emergency.

As Savers of the Family Archives we take your family's treasures very seriously. Call Home Video Studio today to preserve them for generations to come!
