I went through this a while ago with some old home movies my family found.

What I wound up doing was having them transferred by a guy I found here on
the net: Tim English   time at tir.com

He and his wife do this as a part time thing, and only to VHS.  They did a
decent job (I guess, since there's no way of knowing what was really on the
forty year old film).  It was very reasonable.

If VHS works for you, give it a try.
