Data Backup Day: Digitize Your Records

The first day of every month is "Data Backup Day"

For a genealogist, "Backing up one's data" can include asking yourself whether or not you have any important photographs or paper documents that could be converted into data.

This makes it easier to share the documents with relatives, as well as helps preserve the documents (if the data is backed up on a regular basis.)
