Backup Your Data Before It's Too Late!

'I'm too busy to backup my data', 'I don't know how to backup data', 'My hard drive won't crash'...

But how would you feel if you lost years of genealogy research, your address book, your emails, and your digitized family pictures and documents?

So backup your data before it's too late!

There are many ways to backup your data according to your needs:

USB Flash Drive

USB Flash Drives are cheaper than many other backup systems, simple to use, small and convenient, but it is also easy to lose these small devices. Storage capacities can range from 64 MB to 256 GB, and some have 10-year data retention.

CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs

The lifetime of a CD-ROM may vary from 2 years to 20 years depending of its quality and the storage conditions. A standard 120 mm, "700 MB" CD-ROM can hold 737 MB with error correction. In comparison, a single-layer DVD-ROM can hold 4.7 GB of error-protected data, more than 6 CD-ROMs.

External Hard Drive

External Hard Drives are a secure and long-term data storage solution. Unfortunately, they are too expensive for most of us. Find here the CNET review of external hard drives.

Online Backup Services

This is the most secure way to backup your data because they also backup their servers in their data center! Find here a list of free online service providers to determine what online computer backup solutions are suitable for you.

I highly recommend to use an online backup service to store your data!

Export your GeneaNet Online Family Tree

If you have manually entered your GeneaNet Online Family Tree, you may need to export it to your computer.

To do so, simply go to My GeneaNet : Online Family Tree : Save then select a file format.

You can also export the ancestors or the descendants of any individual in your family tree.

GeneaNet: Write Your Family History

Some people think that genealogy is just a list of names and dates. But, with the simple addition of personal memories and family stories, genealogy can be much more than that.

GeneaNet helps you write and publish your family history.

Log in to your online family tree as "wizard", then click "Family History" in the left sidebar to open the family history editor.

Your stories and images must be edited as Wikitext, a markup language that offers a simplified alternative to HTML and is used to write pages in wiki websites such as Wikipedia.

Wikitext is simple and some basics will help you create beautiful pages.


You can insert and annotate pictures in your family history book.

This will help you to identify family members and ancestors, tell about places where photos were taken, and comment sweet moments in the life of your family.


Export your family history in PDF file format to share with family and friends.

You can add a title, a cover image and a table of contents, set the order of the pages, protect your PDF file, and much more.
