Backing Up Your Computer Files

What if your computer files, which include your years of genealogy research, were destroyed by fire, flood, or a natural disaster such as Hurricane Katrina? What if your computer were stolen along with the external hard drive or other media containing a backup of your computer files? What would any of these disasters do to your ability to use the tons of data, photos, and other media you have built over the years?

Elyse of Elyse’s Genealogy Blog has done an informative video on computer backup methods. In her video, she mentions online backup services such as Mozy and Carbonite.

I have also included in this posting a video on Carbonite vs Mozy: Which Online Backup Is Best?

Discrepancies in Memories and Oral History

Memory is a funny thing and we know that when several people witness the same event such as an accident, they will all remember and recall it differently. This is a hilarious video of a discussion among three black gospel music pioneers, Thomas Dorsey, Sally Martin (lady on left side), and Willie May Ford Smith (lady on right side) about the origins of the first Gospel Music Convention.

Mr. Thomas Dorsey keeps his cool as he sits in between these two argumentative and highly opinionated women.

If I were the person who asked this question to these three gospel music pioneers, I would write down ALL sides of the story.
