So far so good, I am keeping up!
It’s now Week 9, of the wonderful Genealogy prompts from Amy Johnson Crow and this week we are looking at the subject of “Disaster”.
The first thing that I thought of was; what would happen if I lost all my years of Family History Research, due to Computer Crash, Virus, flood etc, how disastrous would that be!! Unthinkable!!
Therefore to prevent the worst type of “Genealogical Disaster”, what preventative measures have you taken to protect your work and is it foolproof?
My family tree program is connected and backed up via Ancestry, so I have a permanent up to date online version of my tree. This is mirrored by two bi-monthly backups to a memory stick, with the third back up option covered by the cloud. In addition to my Family Tree software, all family tree files and folders are backed up this way. It’s not completely foolproof, but I’m hopeful that I have enough resources should “Disaster” strike! Are you prepared for the unthinkable?
