It wouldn't take long for one important question to filter into your brain: What videos, both new and old, do I have that I want to preserve for the future, for my children and grandchildren? With this one question to guide you in your video search, let's see where else those important videos might be hiding.
Priceless Family Memories
You then recall that another niece was married ten months ago. You had just the right seat and, with your pocket-sized video recorder, took the only video that showed the bride and her father walking down the aisle. You also captured the first kiss and the bridal party coming back down the aisle from the perfect spot. Those videos you uploaded to an online sharing website so the rest of the family could see them. Did you also save copies to an external hard drive? Those are definitely videos you do not want to lose.
With digital files, it is easy to shoot lots of footage. However, it is equally easy to lose the files, especially if you haven't indexed them. Unless you know what you have, you won't go looking for them.
Will They Be Lost?
Speaking of old VHS tapes, what about those old Beta-sized tapes you have of a couple of the family reunions recorded on? Those are priceless since so many of the older people in those videos have passed on. They might just be the only videos you have of dear old Great-Uncle Fred, who lived to be 101.
You remember those old Kodak Super 8 films you still have tucked away in all those plastic boxes. There are films of your high school prom, your wife's cheerleading practices, shots of your graduating class, and home movies from when you were still living at home. You had them transferred to video some time ago. But VHS is now obsolete and how long will the images on those videotapes last, anyway? You'd hate to lose those Christmas shots.
You scratch your head. Isn't it high time -- past time even -- to finally perform an all-out search for all the important videos in your life and transfer them into a current format so they will be around even if you're not? Cataloging them would be an easy task to complete at the same time. There's no time like the present for preserving those irreplaceable family videos.
