The Honeymooner's, one of the greatest shows ever to grace the small screen & certainly my favorite. Ol' Ralphy boy, Ed, Alice & Trixie go from Bensonhurst to Pleasantville in this 8mm/tv show mix.

I videotaped our kids from 1982 when Kelly was 4 months old followed by Michael to Christopher now 16. That's 28 years of (VHS) home movies. I have preserved them digitally & slowly add a few funny clips to embarrass them for a life time. I often refer to them as the "Bratburgers!" Here they are:
WHY so many versions of our family history? WHY NOT?
The Family Histories
When I last worked on creating the digital transfers of my parent's 8mm the results were good. They are now in near mint condition.
The colors are rich, vivid. The images, sharp (Remember this is 8mm, not HD-TV). Some low light footage is grainy but that is to be expected.
To insure the highest quality this video contains only TRUE 8mm not those transferred to VHS, then burned to DVD. Sadly that's all that's left of Dan's but at least I've archived them. Marie's original 8mm Blizzard Wedding footage has yet to be found, but we have the copied VHS quality.
You can see Marie's & Dan's videos here:
Here are the updated 8mm transfers. These ae of the highest quality. Near mint. Rich, vivid color:
A combination of my parent's & my brother Doug's restored 8mm with Dan Marini's Pleasantville visits.
Dan's films are long gone with only a fading VHS copy available. The VHS (vob) files were pulled/converted/enhanced to the best possible quality. Dan's near 16 minutes of Pleasantville footage intertwines with ours in chronological order.
These videos are similar to the above. These were the first attempt at a digital transfer. If you compare these to the 10 above you'll agree while these are good, the above look great.

These 9 are the 8mm History of our family produced in chronological order. These are ALL VHS copies produced before digital became available.
Starting in 1956 to the mid 1970's. Filmed by my parents, my brother's Doug & Donald, plus footage from Frank Patane (Blizzard/Marie's wedding), & Uncle Dan (Quincy footage & about 14 minutes of 8mm filmed in Pleasantville at different times):
