It is the Third Day of the Month: Back Up Your Genealogy Files

Today is the third day of the month. I usually post a message on the first day of the month reminding everyone to make backups of their genealogy files (and other important files as well). However, the first day of July fell on Saturday and I normally don’t post new articles on the weekend. So, here it is: this is this month’s reminder article.

Oh, yes, after you make the backups, test your backups! You wouldn’t be the first person to discoiver your backups didn’t do what you thought they were doing at a time when you desperately need to recover something!

If you are not familiar with my “normal” monthly reminder messages, you can read a recent one at: Othrwise, consider this article to be your monthly reminder.
