Somewhere in the continuum between a hoarder and compulsive purger is a happy medium for your family history. When a genealogist keeps everything, the next generation can be overwhelmed and decide to toss everything, just to save their sanity. But one person's junk could be another's family history treasure. How will the everyday stuff, the documents, and the heirlooms be passed down in your family? What can you do now to make sure the important stories are protected so that they can inspire future generations? How do you preserve the personalities of those who came before?
With a few simple steps, you can determine what is most valuable and how to best preserve it. Store your physical treasures so that they will be valued, and decide on the best digital archive and create a digital will so that your history will last into the next generations. The intersection between the digital and the physical world is changing drastically in this generation. Learn how to work with your family member's current interests and project into the future to determine what to keep and what to toss.
