Another year gone by. Good riddance, 2008. I lost my grandmother and father within a week of each other in October. When all the older members of your family are gone, you get a new perspective on life. I don’t have parents to lean on for advice anymore.
With the losses in my family the last few years, I am now on a mission to preserve as much history as possible. I am scanning negatives and photos and storing them in Aperture. I have a box full of 8mm film that I need to have converted. I’ve got a ton of geneology stuff that my mom had. I also have Digital 8 tapes of my own kids that I am converting to MPEG4 movies. I’m worried that my Sony Digital 8 camera is going to fail before I can get all these tapes migrated.
So this is my mission for 2009. How am I going to accomplish all this? I’ll blog about this in the future.
