Dont know where you are, but you will be able to find photo labs in most towns. They will be able to do something for you.
Another way is to use your digital camera. Put the negative in front of white platic or cloth which has a bright light shining through. Take a photo. You may have to steady the camera by sitting it on something. When viewing it on the computer, most viewers have an invert function which will turn your negative into a positive. Hope that helps.
Regards
Blessed are the cracked, they will let in the light.
