Keep It Safe

Christmas is almost here and maybe it is time to buy yourself a gift that will help you keep all your research safe and secure.  Let's face it.  We live on a barrier island on the east coast.  Although we have been blessed with many hurricane-free years, we all know that we are always at the mercy of Mother Nature.  Do you really think that cardboard box in the closet is going to keep all that family ephemera safe?  And even if you don't have a lot of family history research, photos, and papers to protect, how about the stuff you would normally want to secure in case of an emergency?

The Armchair Genealogist recently posted her list of top ten Christmas gifts for the dis-organized genealogist.  You can see her whole post here.  But at the top of her list was a Guardian Storage Box.  Lynn posted her review of this box back in October.  You can read her opinion by clicking here.  The box(es) are available directly from the manufacturer or you can purchase them on  If you are an Amazon Prime Member, the price for the one shown below is $77.31 (as of 28 Nov) and shipping is free.

Although I read Lynn's October post, I didn't think much of it at the time.  I am now rethinking the purchase of one (or more) of these boxes.  Better safe than sorry!

Happy Shopping!
