Converting very old 8mm kodak cine film to digital

Can anyone who lives in the United States or the U.K. advise me where I can get 8mm "home movies" converted to digital.

I have several hundred feet of very old (60 years) exposed 8mm Kodak (colour) movie film which I'd like to have converted.  Every small town has a hick that will do it BUT I would like the work to be done by professionals.

The film was exposed in a Bolex cine camera, carefully edited and spliced.  Old family records, so to me they are precious.

I know that there are labs. that will clean, re-splice (if necessary) and convert.

Any recommendations ?

With thanks
