September Backup Reminder

For those in the Northern Hemisphere either the children are already back to school after a fun summer or they will be going back in the next several days. So maybe you will have a little bit of time to yourself to make sure you have all your valuable genealogy (and other information) backed up.

If you are using a computer to record all that information see my posts below for tips on how you can make backups:
Backups - Part I (An Overview)
Backups - Part II (Local backups)
Backups - Part III (Cloud Storage) 
Backups - Part IV (Wrap up)

But for those not using a computer to record and track all your various genealogy records what are you doing about all your shelves of work that you have painstakingly gathered over the many years? How are you making sure they aren't lost due to some sort of disaster? It would be awful to lose a wall of binders and books to a fire, flood, tornado or hurricane.

It is something to think about. How do you back up binders? I look forward to your comments.
