An Afternoon of Disasters

I spent a delightful afternoon with the members of the Jacksonville Genealogical Society who invited me to speak about protecting our personal archives from disaster. Thank you all for being such gracious hosts.

Topics range from site management to collaboration tools with lots of items in between. I am…
