Old black and white negatives

Is there anyone still printing old black and white negatives from a kodak brownie camera and that ilk. So the size of the negs is larger.
I don't have a lot of money to spend on this project so am trying to find an economical way to print these.
Does anyone have success scanning negatives???

I've had good success scanning old negatives with my Epson 4990. You tell the scanning software you're doing negatives, and the result is a positive image.

Re: Old black and white negatives

I am also using an Epson 4990 & am trying to scan in large size old negatives (2.25 x 2 3/8) using the 'medium format carrier' but the resulting image comes out either cut off or in two pieces. Is it me or the scanner, which I haven't used much.
