Scanning microfilm to digital image has helped numerous genealogists, families, researchers, and hobbyists bring the past to life. From personal diaries to church records to birth records to military records to small town newspapers, roll film conversion is the process used to breathe new life into archaic media like roll film.
Generation Imaging has provided this scanning microfilm service to many independent researchers and they have benefited from having the ability to:
– Print images from CD/DVD
– Copy discs to their home computer, other PCs, a network, and even make duplicate copies
– Upload images to the internet
– E-mail images
– Edit and enhance images
Preserving your family’s heritage as never been easier- but only if you can get a hold of the 16mm or 35mm reels so G.I. can commence scanning microfilm to digital image. Almost every library has a heritage room or microfilm/microfiche archive. It’s important to establish a good relationship with your local library and hopefully you could check out media for G.I. to digitize it. Otherwise you would have to implore The Friends of the Library to rely on donations to get your local library to necessary funding to begin scanning microfilm with Generation Imaging.
The cost of scanning microfilm is not expensive with G.I., since we understand the social importance of such a service. G.I. keeps its overhead low in this new economy so you can benefit from the savings.
Let us be realistic: it we are now in the second decade of the 2000s; there is no practical reason to still be using roll film for genealogy if you can digitize the images to PDF, TIFF, or JPEG by scanning microfilm.
