Thanks to Margaret Quick for sharing these films and to the late Cheryl (Reese) DeJesus for her help buying three different antique projectors on ebay before giving up and taking the films to a professional and paying to have them put on VHS. A few years ago, I transferred them to digital and now they are available for all the family to see. The quality is very poor and their movie camera didn't record sound, yet the footage is priceless to the descendants of these Dickinsons.
Anyone with more family films, please consider contributing them. Contact me!
