Bur Wright Family Film

The Bur Wright Family Film Collection

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to our (W)right relatives. I know it's been  many years since we've gathered as a family but that doesn't mean we don't think of you. 

Patty and I have a gift for you. A while back my dear sister Robin gave us the opportunity to digitize all of Daddy Burr's home movies. We want to make these available for you to view and download.

The index is the best we could do before Christmas. Any additional info you can provide such as names, dates, and locations would be most welcome.

The items listed as Travelogs were only scenery shots. There were no people and little identification as to what one was viewing. They are not included in this collection but are available if you have an interest. Those files and titles are listed at the end of this artical.

The index is sorted by the estimated timeline. Travelog files are listed at the end for your reference. These files are not linked.

Technical Details

The files here have been reduced in size. The original digital files are a higher resolution and are very large. Additionally, I have had each frame digitized an image. At 15 frames per second there are 10's of thousands of images in this collection. I have these images to preserve the film as best as possible.

If you desire to have any or all of these enhanced files just let me know I'll get them to you.
