google local places. They'll be some in Miami.
Tour their shop and DO NOT use them if they project onto a wall.
gotmemories and other companies will use a frame by frame scanning method directly connected to the computer.
anything else is amateurishly subpar and not recommended at all.
Not recommended is costco either. They ship their films out to California from what I'm told and I've had clients who had issues with footage being cut out (not a client request), weird music added etc..etc.. Of course, maybe that's just a few bad cases, but still....no need to ship precious memories which could get lost when there is probably someone local with the professional equipment. Shipping probably isn't a problem, but what I'm saying is you can't just to Best Buy and buy another set of memories!
Touring their shop is essential. These are family memories and you want to ensure that whomever you trust, had got the right equipment and takes the business of preserving memories, seriously.
Usually going to digital is more cost effective then getting them to blu ray or DVD. You can get .avi files or numberic jpeg or tiff files which you can compile in FCX, FCexpress or IMovie. The benefit of having the digital files is that you can edit out what you want, it's cheaper to transfer and then you can share smaller sections with more family easier.
Best of luck,

What you want is a proper direct or near direct transfer. As example -
No, I don't work for them but they have a very good reputation. At least you can see the machines they offer to sell AND the services they will do for you.
There are also other companies that will do a decent transfer or corrected transfer (costs more). I urge you to consider going this route as family films are priceless when you think about them and a poor copy is no substitute.
I don't do vid work but I do digital restoration of photos for many people and consider good movie transfer to be just as valuable to families so I advocate the above process over hack work. After all, it is your family.
