Flash Drive Genealogy: How-to Easily Store and Backup Your Important Genealogy Information
I did a survey and got tons of feedback from readers of my Treasure Maps Genealogy newsletter. My goal being to address and help solve problems and concerns that many online genealogy researchers have.
For example, look at the answer to this question:
QUESTION: What is your biggest problem with your computer skills? What would you like to know how to do better that is holding you back?
ANSWER: “Something stupid and basic! I have a flash drive but I haven’t used it yet. I don’t know how to copy my FTM (Family Tree Maker) stuff onto it, and that’s what I got it for.”
I’ve withheld the name because I don’t want anyone to feel embarrassed, but this kind of problem is very common (and it is not stupid). Today, we will go into depth on this topic and I even have a video for you to see that I created just for this lesson (see below).
