I still have an Amstrad 6128 with a 3" drive and 3½" second drive and the software to copy to MSDOS disks. So, if you think there is anything you want copied off them, I can do it.
The oldest document I have was written to an 8" floppy 30 years ago, copied to a 5¼" floppy, then copied via a network consisting of a Mac, IBM and PCW (so that people at work could exchange documents between their different home computers) to a 3" disk, and then copied via a 3½" Amstrad disk, a 3½" MSDOS disk and a DVD to my current Linux computer.
Its format journey has been WordStar->WordPerfect->ODT->TXT->LyX.
