How great is this? I just found, a free Web site that will back up your family tree data file automatically* and store the file remotely for you.

Not only will you have your data preserved in the event of hardware failure or disaster, but you can also access your tree from anywhere using their cloud computing capability. Your data is safe via SSL encryption. And you can even store successive versions of your tree. (Those of you who have attended my organizing presentation know I start with a fresh family tree file every day I do research.) Now I can store them all remotely with this service. They’ve been live for about six weeks.

Visit for more information.

*If you’re using a Windows computer. If you’re on a Mac, you have to manually upload your Reunion data file. So please,, let’s get Macs that automatic capability and soon!
