Computers: We love 'em, we hate 'em, and we love to hate
'em. The good news? Computers are a big part of our daily lives (especially if
you're reading this!). And I guarantee you that I couldn't keep those ancestors
straight without the aid of a software program!
However, as much as they make a genealogist's
life easier, the reverse can be true if you forget to back up your data!
Fortunately, it's easier than ever.
My personal favorite has been my Zip250 drive,
easily attached to my computer via USB cable. The disks hold a whopping 250MB of
data, and backup is quick and easy. Other connectivity choices are
available for this drive, including SCSI and parallel.
