What you need is a high-quality scanner. I have an Epson Perfection 4990 
PHOTO and it is designed to scan slides and negatives. It does a great 
job, and does 8 slides at a time.

I would offer to do it for you, John, but I am in Canada and that might 
make it awkward. Surely there is someone closer to home?

If not, let me know. When do you need these?
