If you don't want to scan them, check with your local genealogy society. There are companies that will do it for you, or try what Roy Kelley posted. Or http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-photo-scanning-service/

I would send a test batch of 100 or and see if you like what they send back.

also, photoscan app by google is suppose to be good. https://www.google.com/photos/scan/

Oops! We inherited a projector and boxes of slides.  They are still on a shelf waiting for next generation to do something.

Sorry, Fred... no clue. I own not one single slide. But lots of negatives and paper photos about in my house!

Fred Griffin I found the same slide converter that Roy Kelley found. If you have hundereds, it may be worth getting a converter.

Hi Fred -- two things missing from your photo -- the clicking sound effect and some very good narration of what we were going to see...for the next three hours(and likely longer).   

It looks as if Roy Kelley has an excellent suggestion.  

Enjoy the memories.   Again.

Fred wow that's a flashback to the past. Haven't seen on of those in years but I sure gave a lot of preso's with them. WOW.  As to how you can do that I will ask Gary - he just might now but he's not here right now.

You will have a heart attack going to Walgreens & pricing it all out. Buy a machine BUT .... our library has an AV lab where they help you do this stuff. Check it out.

I do not have these technologies... I think it is cool and maybe it is a good idea to invest in a projector.
