On the internet, all videos are digital -- like the ones you see on YouTube.

So while we'd love to share your 8mm home movies or VHS tapes, they'd have to be converted to DVD first.  We can't do that.  But we know someone who will!

Terry Moore (wife of WQRC Founder and engineering whiz Don Moore) has a wonderful studio in their Centerville home.  Her company, "A Lifetime of Memories", specializes in rescuing old films and videotapes -- and delivering them to you as DVDs.

You can reach her at 508-771-0457.   Or click here to send her an e-mail describing what you've got.

Once your video is on DVD, just select the segments you'd like to share on this website.
We'll turn those segments into Flash videos that everyone will be able to see!
