I have 8mm microfilm of AAA records but the only place I can read them is at a downtown historical library and after several hours managed to view and take note of a fraction of one roll. Need to be able to view them at home and cut and paste segments.

Attempted numerous sources including iMemories.com that advertised any format. Even called them, “Oh yes, we can do it” only to have them returned. ‘No can do” They called it reel to reel video. So if anyone has a digitizing source that can handle the somewhat odd format please let me know. It doesn’t look like this site gets too much traffic so email direct. djksetx@yahoo.com. Thanks.

DJ,
I have a lead for you.
I talked to some members of a camera store/photo lab group and told them about your situation. Here is the response that I got from them:

Terry, just spoke with my film transfer guy, Rick Lombardi from TeleFilm transfers. They have Bosch scanners for transferring 8mm to 35mm movie film. They have done some other odd work like this. He thinks they could do it, but may need to get a reel in to try it first. Maybe you could email him a photo of a strip of the film to see if that helps? Rick’s cell is 215-559-4513.

Hope this helps.
