I love history and genealogy! My mother in law just received a gallon sized ziplock bag full of film negatives of her mother as a child. Apparently, these negatives have survived separately from the original prints. They are large, bigger than a business card, so they won’t fit into the negative scanner that we have.
I would love to be able to digitilize the negatives – my MIL is hesitant to take them anywhere to be printed as they are irreplacable. I have looked around online for information, but I don’t even know what size the film is. I am going to try scanning with the lid closed, then open, and then with a mirror behind the film (to reflect the light back) and then with a light behing the film. Hopefully I’ll be able to figure out the best method for preserving these memories.
