I began digitizing old films in 2002, eventually expanding services to video tapes such as VHS, Betamax, and various video camera formats, as well as 35mm slides, printed photos, and audio recordings.

The Canada Historical Films youtube collection I started in 2012, while the Niagara Historical Films project on youtube began in June 2016.

As of January 2019, I have over 100 videos of old films in the youtube collection from 1921 to the 1980s.

Still hoping to find even just one old film of the old Welland Canals, with a commercial sailing schooner somewhere on the 2nd or 3rd.
