South Carolina man buys VCR from Goodwill, finds family videos from 1994-95


Precious memories perhaps inadvertently cast aside have resurfaced in the Lowcountry, and the man who found the memento is hoping to return it to the family.

Jayson Hansen says he bought a VCR at the Palmetto Goodwill store on St. James Avenue in Goose Creek a couple weeks before Christmas.

When he got the video cassette player home, Hansen says he found a VHS tape already inside. The tape was labeled "Family Videos 1994 Florida."

The recordings (2 hours of them) span from Dec. 1994 to May 1995.

The videos feature family Christmas and birthday gatherings, a children's Christmas play and academic awards ceremony at a church, a school Christmas function, and youth and varsity basketball games played by the "Calvary Cougars" (maroon & gold team colors).

You can view still frames and a condensed version of the video in the gallery above.

Hansen now hopes to be able to return the video to its rightful owners. If the video belongs to you, or if you recognize anyone in it and may know how to reach the family, CLICK HERE to send Hansen a private message on Facebook.
