Many people have forgotten if their home movies are 'regular-8mm' (also called 'standard 8mm' or 'double 8mm') film or super 8mm film. One way to determine which you have is actually quite simple: super-8mm film is released in 1965 so if you are certain your 8mm. films were shot before 1965, you have 'regular 8'. This doesn't mean that films shot after 1965 are automatically in the super-8 format! Regular-8mm is still made, even today.
