LOCKSS: Back Up Your Family History!


Every day is backup day but especially on the 1st of every month, I take a moment to be sure my family trees, family booklets, old photos, files, ancestor coloring books, and other documents are safe with multiple backup methods.

This is the LOCKSS principle in action: Lots of copies keep stuff safe. 

Not only do I have backups in the cloud and on two external drives, I also send selected items to relatives. 

Plus I have family trees and ancestor bios on multiple genealogy sites. 

These are a few of the ways I preserve family history for today and for tomorrow.
