L.O.C.K.S.S. stands for Lots Of  Copies Keeps Stuff Safe.  Very clever - but very important.  I cannot emphasize enough the importance of keeping multiple copies of all your genealogy information in more than one place.  This applies to those you are keeping paper files, too.

I am a strong advocate of multiple redundancy when it comes to preserving our heritage.  Dick Eastman recently posted on his blog, "Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter" a piece entitled, The Easy Way to Store Backups on Multiple Online Services with cloudHQ.  If you are like me and are a fairly paperless person, this article will show you a way to save your digital files automatically.  If you are a paper person, you will come away with a better understanding of the importance of multiple copies.

Protect your valuable research, documents and photos.  Don't let all that hard work go to waste.
