When professional organizer Eric Saber was helping his mother-in-law straighten up her home office, they came across some old home movies, and since she didn't have the equipment to play them, she was going to throw them away. Saber convinced her to have them digitized instead. (Indeed, research has shown the psychological benefits of nostalgic reminiscence.) One site that makes this process easy is Legacybox; you send them your old tapes, film, photos and audio recordings, and they digitize them onto thumb drives, the clouds or DVD.
