Video tapes won’t last forever. In fact, most estimates say they’ll survive just 20 years before degrading. Digitally preserving them and placing them on DVDs or thumb drives is the only way to stop the degradation process. If you want to preserve your tapes, you’ll have to convert them to a digital format. That’s what Roots Family History™ does.


  1. Drop off your video tapes to 1901 Wildwood Street Mon-Fri between 9am and 5:30pm
  2. Roots Family History™ captures the footage from your tapes from the beginning of each tape to the end
  3. Your footage is placed on either a thumb drive or a DVD (chosen by you)
  4. You are notified with an email and a phone call and you come pick up your new videos.
