I grew up with a Genealogist in the days before digital preservation. On many weekends I’d be taken to the library and sitting in boredom as my mother looked through various microfiche death and birth records in order to accurately determine our ancestry.

Then, Microfiche was the accepted norm in preserving newspapers and other important documents. But this, along with film, cassettes, photographs, discs and other forms of media have proven over the years to be unreliable.

We all have a story to tell. Whether it be the mother who was 125x125 bannerchosen as Best Dancer in the high school yearbook, or the amazing trip you took to the beach when you were seven years old, these stories are important. Now, with digital cameras and social media, it’s so easy to preserve these memories in so many places. But it’s our past we need to protect.

Southtree converts all your files – videotape, movie film, photographs and audiocassettes – to DVD media so you can enjoy these today.

Memories like this – admittedly, this was done by someone in our family, but we have many photos like this that are in scrapbooks and hat boxes and need to be preserved. It’s me, my Mom, and my brothers on a trip to the Rocky Mountains in 1982.

I just checked with Southtree customer service, and there are no locks on these DVDs, so you can use a DVD converting program to save these items as digital files. I -highly- recommend this, as it is the best way to keep your files preserved from physical damage, as well as easily accessible.

Right now, you can take advantage of the following offer:

Do you have anything sitting in your archives that need to be protected from wear and tear?
