The Family History Preservation Station (FHPS) is a ready-made transfer station for you to save your old family memories before it is too late.  The FHPS has analog to digital video transfer, high-speed and high-quality photo scanning, and audio recording equipment and software.  Due to varying recording speeds, video copying works best if the original recording device is available to play the tapes. 

 

The transfers can take time, so be sure to schedule accordingly.
