This past Christmas, my brother and I gave our parents a gift they really needed - we got all of their old tapes digitized with the help of iMemories.
It was an extremely easy process. After signing up, iMemories sends a "SafeShip Kit." You fill the kit/box with anything you want digitized (photos and videos) and once they receive it, they give you a quote for how much it will cost. Then once you confirm the cost, they'll digitize everything and host it in the cloud and/or store it on a device (discs or USB).
Truly, it was seamless, efficient and fast. About a week or two after my parents sent the kit in, we were watching and sharing all the videos online and reminiscing about the good ol' days. These videos sat in a drawer for YEARS and they're finally seeing the light of day. Additionally, my parents felt a bit relieved that these memories were stored someplace safe in case anything were to happen to their house. It was the gift that kept on giving!
I'm in no way affiliated with iMemories. I'm simply a happy customer who has peers with parents in the same situation. I highly recommend their service if you're looking for a great gift. It was such a treat to watch my parents ooh and ahh, smile and even shed some happy tears while reliving old memories.
