Colour transparencies.

I have recently been searching through various boxes in my barn , looking for old pics.
When I moved, first from Essex and then from the next village I put all my scribblings and my photographs in large plastic boxes.
Today it is so easy to snap anything that takes our eyes with mobile phones etc and they are stored on our computers and are easily accessed!
But I realised that I wanted pictures of my children too.
So off I went to find them.
I now have some school photographs of them both, safe on my iPad but yesterday I realised why there were a lot missing....
There they were but on colour transparencies...
Hundreds of small boxes contain pictures of holidays long gone.
David 1 was an excellent photographer....and was convinced that the future lay in the tiny little transparency. He invested in the little machines to put them in. We also had a white wall that showed us all in glorious technicolor.
But decades of taking pictures of us all are now more or less confined to the box!
I am wondering if there is a way of getting some of them onto my iPad...but the thought of sitting down for days peering into the small boxes , to find pictures too small to transfer to my phone does not appeal.
David was computer only arrived in our house after he had died...but I would like some of his brilliant photos to survive.
