World Vital Records Offers Digitization Services
Posted by Diane
The subscription genealogy database site World Vital Records
has expanded its services to include digitally preserving your family mementos. Its new Preservation Packages include
- converting 8mm, 16mm, miniDVs and VHS tapes to DVD
- scanning photos and documents
- digitizing slides and negatives
- storing digitized images on a secure server
In a World Vital Records user panel survey, 91 percent of members said they were concerned about preserving photos, videos, and/or documents.
Exact pricing isn’t available; Word Vital Records says rates are 50 to 70 percent less than retail value. Call the company toll-free (888) 377-0588 for details.
For information on several batch photo-scanning services and do-it-yourself tips, see the January 2008 Family Tree Magazine
