History Creators did an amazing job of making my old VHS available and convenient for me to view. They lightened the video and took out sections that were defective, and now I’m able to watch videos of me and my grandparents when they were young. So excited and thankful for History Creators for doing such a careful and awesome job!

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed bringing these old VHS tapes back to life. So happy that this service exists!

Why choose us:

Deeply passionate about family history

At History Creators, we view ourselves as family historians, preservationists, and artisans. Your family's tapes and photos will be treated with the utmost seriousness and care - like they were being preserved for a museum or government archive.

History Creators was founded by historian and technologist, Jonathan Fouch. Jonathan has spent the greater part of his 9-year career helping families build their legacy through technology. He is the former Chief Technology Officer of one of the largest estate planning law firms in the State of Michigan. There he developed software to create Wills and Trusts for hundreds of Michigan families. He was also in charge of a large project to digitize thousands of documents.

He graduated magna cum laude from Oakland University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and German Language and Literature [READ MORE].

FAQs

Yes, we operate a main-in service similar to our national competitors. We never had a mail carrier lose an item and it is an extremely rare occurrence in the digitizing industry. However, if possible, we would prefer clients take advantage of our focus on Metro Detroit and drop the items off or schedule a pickup.

Made in Detroit:

Location:

History Creators is located on the 2nd floor of 26100 American Drive, Southfield, Michigan 48034 within the offices of Shea Aiello law firm.

Appointments:

We accept in-person appointments at our office, but please call ahead of time as we frequently travel throughout the Metro Detroit area.
