These movies have a long history, with their different states of preservation.  Nancy Pierce had them restored from their original condition in the 1970's by her friend, Pat Duffy, who was an expert in film preserving.  She re-spliced them and removed the torn and damaged sections.  The film that we have in the canisters is in good quality and well preserved.  There are two cartoons, a Woody Woodpecker and a Hop-A-Long Cassidy, that I will put on this page for some extra entertainment also someday.  We used Costco's services for scanning them to DVD.  They made it complicated by forcing me to use their software to initially peel sections of the film away which I then converted to MP4 and finally FlV.........

I have two pages that contain in more detail
information about the family articles and
photographs that Beth and I are working on.
Beth has been a great inspiration, in focusing our
efforts to go through and organize all of the information that my mother and father saved.  My job along the way is to save the information in a digitized format.  To read more about the project click here.  To download a project PDF, click here........
I would like to use this page to display family relics, projects and interesting information.  Feel free to include any thoughts, articles or ideas as well.  When you have some photos and text together, just contact me by clicking here.  I will then email you upload instructions.
I am looking forward to converting more of these family movies into digital format, and copies are certainly available for any body who wants them.  Just look on this page for future movies as they come available.  They will be displayed in reverse chronological order with the original two at the top of the page with new movies added below.  If this page gets too long it will be divided into sections, so click on the read more continuation. Categories that we can expect to see in the future cover, travel with Europe and Mexico, the years in Los Gatos, the Wehinger family growing up and many others.  I hope you enjoy these movies.  My Grandmother, Florence Elsman, would be pleased..........
