In the transfer of Youtube to Google, my unlisted videos have vanished. Is there a way to get them back?

Not all of the youtube-Google account transfers went well, and mine was one of the unlucky ones. All my "unlisted" videos have vanished. I took it up with their tech support (after a major search to FIND google tech support, but they do have it for the youtube transfer, which tells me there were many problems with it.) After a lengthy interchange with them they finally concluded the videos are irretrievably gone. Luckily, most of the videos I had stored on the hard drive, or dvds, but not all.
Has anyone else encountered this problem. and do you have any suggestions? I have my old youtube information, user name, channel name, password, and the URLs of the missing videos, since they were family events and special occasions, and I had links to them on our Family Google Sites (also private).
Thanks so much to anyone who can offer help!
