We at Leave A Legacy are always happy to help you preserve your memories with digital creations. We thank you all for coming back in with more and more projects and for sharing your experience with your friends who bring in their projects as well and keep things hopping at Leave A Legacy. We’ve been in business long enough and have built friendships with many of our clients and that some of you have come to a different stage in life and have let us know that you are moving away. Lately we’ve had long time clients tell us that they are moving to Spearfish, SD, Cody, WY and Tuscon, AZ. Once we get their final items digitized they don’t seem to want to take the old analog originals with them. :)While the holiday projects are starting to trickle in we are gearing up for the big rush of projects for the holiday season.
Here is some more inspiration from some of the projects that our clients have brought through our door.
Betty wanted one photo made into 2 individual photos and 3 individual photos combined into one image. This was all done to conserve space in her photo albums and to better help her tell her story. Let us know if you have some photo creativity that you need done.
Brint has brought in over 10,000 feet of film to transfer along with several audio cassette tapes of his narration that we are combining together to make DVDs. He didn’t think it was possible to marry them together but we can do most anything you imagine with them once they are digital. The films are treasures all the more with his narrations from long ago. It’s not surprising that he doesn’t remember all the the stories he told on these old recordings. A great illustration of how important it is to record your memories not only for later generations but for yourself as well.
Cathy White brought in some glass negatives that she would like help identifying the people in. We looked it up and found that glass negatives were used from 1851-1880. They used light-sensitive silver salts on thin sheet of glass. She also brought in a tintype. Those were used during 1860s and 1870s and consist of a thin sheet of metal with the image made of dark lacquer or enamel.
Doug brought in this photo of a family member MIA during the Korean War. They will upload his scanned photo to a government site to see if they can obtain any new information on him.
Phyllis brought in her family movie films in this adorable bag. She didn’t think the bag was anything special as the films had been stored in them for years. She was glad to be able to digitize all of the films and will later add her narration. She looks forward to sharing the memories with the later generations soon.
