Weird Interchangeable dot-matrix game console from the 90s that looked like a microfilm reader with rear projected backgrounds.

I'm 33 years old and grew up during the 90s. My family was well below the poverty line so it was rare that I got anything decent.

I remember having this handheld game console with interchangeable games, sort of like the Gamechild mk-II, the sort with the permanently rendered colored background with a black and white dot matrix screen on top.

Unlike the gamechild mk-II, this thing was BEEFY, and resembled a microfilm reader. The actual dot-matrix part was permanently fixed in place, and the game cartridges contained a clear slide with the background image which would be rear projected behind it.

Almost everything from my childhood is long gone after many moves and several floods, but there was a time when I would play this game often. I'm not so much looking to buy one, but I would appreciate if anybody could fill in the blanks on what this thing was called and if direct me to any photos that might exist of it so I can show people how real the struggle was.

Edit: solved, it was the R-zone super screen. I saw r-zones pop up when I was googling this but none of the results were the super screen.

Is it even possible to restore an image like this? My father got lost on our nearest mountain when he was 10. This is the only image I have of the newpaper which has since been lost, trying to find the microfilm locally.

Microfilm via Family Search catalog

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out the original town for my great-great grandparents. To this end, I'm looking to access the marriage license from their marriage, which took place post-emigration, in Queens, New York. I suspect the automatic transcription of their parents names might be incorrect, so I want to see the original. Unfortunately, the microfilm is only available at a family research center, which I cannot access at this time. The GS Film Number is 1906780 (FHL microfilm 1,906,780) and the "Source Details" number is 3088. I'm happy to provide the specific names and dates via PM.

Thank you in advance!

Microfilms for the Nelson Syphus Article

Since I had Monday to myself and didn't have any schoolwork, I decided to look into that article on Nelson Syphus, however, it can't be found on the internet (by my means). Most likely the article was published in the Los Angeles Times, but I decided to look at Microfilms of the New York Times Science Times. So far I have ruled out the article being from 1980-1982, as I came across ads for Apple II computers, but I've only made it up to 1989. I've also only looked at July publications that are on all Tuesdays in July on or after the 15th (Science Times is only published on Tuesdays). So, with my findings this either means the article is from between 1990-1999, wasn't published in the New York Times, or the article wasn't published in July (possible that the conference was July 15th). I shall continue my efforts another day, but I report my findings (or lack of) and hopefully, it could be of some use.

Note: The Microfilm for 1983 I needed was wound backwards, so I had to skip over that year.

Advice on Microfilm Scanner

Hi all need some advice. My work is currently in the market for a scanner for microfilm. We have around 10000 reels of 16mm microfilm that needs to be digitised. Currently we get requests for specific images on these reels so ideally after we get the images needed we would scan the whole reel as we go.

We would also need to make the text on the scanned Images searchable.

We have been quoted for stViewscan 4 and the scanpro 3000. Does anyone have any experience or opinions on these machines? Which one would be better for what we need it for? Any advice would be appreciated

Microfilm help

Hi! I've posted a few times, and always gotten great advice, so I'm hoping for a little more help.

I work in an academic library in the Archives & Special Collections- a very, very poorly funded one. Our annual budget is about $1,000 a year for supplies, just for some background info.

We have about 25 reels of microfilm containing alumni information, and these are completely unique. We originally (1870-1952) kept physical cards with alumni information on them, and those cards were converted to microfilm and the cards destroyed. Well, a majority of the reels are showing signs of vinegar syndrome, and I'm a little worried about losing this amazing treasure trove of information. I've got a few calls out to scanning services, but my hopes are not high that we'll get approval to get the reels digitized.

Does anyone know of low-cost options to digitize this information? Any cheap but good scanners/readers? I don't mind putting time into it at all. My only other option right now is to manually take the information off of each card and put it into an Excel sheet- which will be far too much time, as there are several hundred cards per reel (and again, there are about 25 reels). Having a service digitize them is the dream, but I know my employers, and I don't think they'll go for this. We have other reels containing old school newspapers, so I'd like to get something that we could use in the future as well.

Does anyone here use the NextScan machines? What's the typical price on those, and how well do they work? What other options do I have? Any advice would be so appreciated!

How to consult a microfilm held at Salt Lake City Family History Library when I am in Europe?

Hi there,

I found an interested record about a family I am interested in indexed on the FamilySearch IGI, and I cannot find the record on any other website.

The source is given as the LDS Endowments for the dead records, which are listed as only held in Utah, USA, at the Family History Library.

While the record could be useful, it's not worth crossing an ocean for (especially during a pandemic).

Does anyone know if I can find these records elsewhere? Or how I can find someone to consult the relevant microfilm for me? I can pay for it if needed, or offer reciprocal research on Scottish, Irish or Dutch genealogy.

Cheers!

Can you tell me old sci-fi movies in which microfilms are used as information medium?

I'm doing (or trying to do) a research about technological imagination, and I find that microforms have quite a history! I know that there were use in several spy and horror movies, but I'm looking them in imaginary futures (probably from the 50s or 60s). The most recent appearance that I recognize was in Blade Runner 2049. Thank you in advance for your comments!

Are there any tricks for trying to read really faded microfilm?

I'm trying to connect the James Phillips who married Merceline Bourassa in Ottawa in 1877 and died in Rat Portage, Ontario in 1904 to the James Philp born in 1822 in Kennoway, Fife, Scotland. I can't seem to trace this guy in Canada further back than 1877, though according to the 1901 census he immigrated in 1853. He also was married before Merceline but I don't know anything about his first wife. I was super excited to find his obituary in the Rat Portage Miner but it's too faded to read! Any help for any aspect of James' life would be appreciated :)
