In Which I Admit I Probably Need Anxiety Medication

Back Up Your GenealogyWhen we talked about what you’d grab if your house was on fire last week, I was shocked at how many of you said you’d grab a computer, hard drive, flash drive, etc.


I don’t believe I’d ever be able to sleep if I only had my stuff on a piece of equipment that was even in the same town as I am.  I have stuff on three hard drives in my house, AND an online backup service that is located far away from me (and costs a whopping $5/month).  Some stuff is on Dropbox too.  I understand why people don’t want to put everything in the cloud and nothing else, but why don’t you put stuff there AND on equipment you own?  If it’s all in your house with you, and a tornado/fire/hurricane/plane crash/flood/who-knows-what hits your house, what then?

Am I the only Nervous Nellie who needs a Plan A, B, C, and D in order to sleep at night?
