I should also add that I have searched Google and seen a number of options. I'm hoping to find someone who has experience with a good one.

I’ve done some 78 to digital conversions. It can be done pretty easily and cost is modest. You just need
1) any vintage ceramic cart turntable that works and has a usable 78rpm stylus. I found one for $20 at a garage sale.
2) a decent quality a2d converter. I’ve used one by Art that can be had on Amazon for about $100. Maybe others there that cost even less that would do.
3) USB out to home computer running Audacity app to process and save to a file (freeware)
I have some sample files created this way if interested.
For a one-off like this just send it to a transfer service.
Use YELP to screen them.
There are quite a few where I live (Los Angeles) and suspect that the same may be true of SF.
They can transfer it to memory sticks and CD's if needed.
I was going to have VHS (8mm home movies transferred to VHS years ago) transferred to DVD, but now I can't find the DVD tapes.
Anyway the transfer fees were quite reasonable for tapes and records.
