Since 2002 HomeMovies.Ca has digitized old films, video tapes, audio, photos, slides, and more for 1,000s of happy people. Many sent in letters of thanks. Below is a 2018 typical letter, from Vickie Witherspoon (Haun), her dad's old Niagara films are on our youtube channel where you can watch it and many  more of the historically notable home movies and professional films digitized over the years

** "Dear Steve, I cannot thank you enough for helping me save to digital my and my family's memories - Sincerely, Vickie"** 

** David Sharron, Head - Archives & Special Collections, Brock University -- "Steve Hartwell has digitized various archival film formats for the Brock University Archives over the years. This has allowed us to provide access to these historical records to new generations of researchers. Steve is very professional and passionate about his work and I endorse the fine work of HomeMovies.ca." **

** Penny Morningstar, Curator of Welland Museum **

**Kathleen Powell, Curator of St Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre **

**Sara Byers, Asst. Curator - City of Niagara Falls Museums -- “Steve’s interest and passion for Canadian historic films was a benefit to our work together digitizing a variety of recorded media in the artefact collection, much of which had not been viewed for many years. Helping us to rediscover and reconnect with this lively part of Niagara Falls history has inspired us to move forward in developing this area of the artifact collections.”**
