  1. Hello,
    I attended your presentation last year at Rochester Genealogy Society and kept your card. I have some home movies from early 1950s, 8mm as well as a vintage cartoon film. I have not had them reformatted yet but willing to donate to you after that is done if you want them.
    The movies are from NYC and York, PA.
    I also have the vintage 8mm projector and movie camera if you are interested.

    • Hi,

      Thanks so much for contacting us. I am the website coordinator and will forward this to Glenn. Sorry about the delay, you are the first person to use this new comment feature so I wasn’t watching it as much as I should. Your offer sounds wonderful to me and I’m sure Glenn will get back to you quickly after I get it to him.
