I am sure we have all had that heart stopping moment when we realise that our computer isn’t working properly and we might never see the contents of the hard drive ever again. Or perhaps the hard drive has become victim to a virus. All those hours of research, all those ancestors just disappeared !
For the last few months I have been using a service called Dropbox which allows you to store data online. I also have an external hard drive which performs a back up every day, but if I ever got burgled the thieves would probably take the external hard drive as well as the computer!
So I now keep my genealogy completely on my Ancestry Tree and my additional research & other precious info on Dropbox. Both are free (Dropbox gives you 2GB free, but you can buy more space) and gives you peace of mind and keep the ancestors safe!!
