Re-using my old Nikon lenses

Hi, I had 2 lenses from the 70s that was used on my Nikkormat. They are the 50mm 2.0 and a newer 135mm tele, f2.8. I would like to reuse them on newer Nikons. Is it possible? I heard that there's adaptors available. Hope someone out there can advise me. Or point me to a camera shop that can help me. It's such a waste for the lenses to sit inside the dry box for so long. I think I got them from Cathay Photo. Are they still around? Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the reply. I know what you mean. Maybe I will go to a camera store this weekend to find out more. Any camera shop good at vintage equipment?
