Everyone loves a “two-fer,” right? We have a two-fer happening today: National Family History Month starts today and being the first of the month it is also Data Backup Day in the genealogy community.
So to mark this event, GeneaBloggers is offering “two” special items: a FREE PDF covering data backup issues for the genealogy AND a contest where you could win a 1TB external hard drive!
Genealogy Data Backup Report
To mark Data Backup Day, each month GeneaBloggers will publish a FREE PDF report – Genealogy Data Backup Report – filled with tips and advice on making sure that your genealogy data is secure. In the coming months, each report will contain reviews of external hard drives, USB flash drives, and cloud backup services. Also, we’ll provide easy-to-follow instructions on making sure you backup all of your genealogy data, like emails from other researchers, your Internet bookmarks and favorites and more . . .
Win a Western Digital 1TB External Hard Drive
But wait, there’s more! How would you like a chance to win Western Digital My Passport Ultra 1TB Portable External USB 3.0 Hard Drive? That’s a $99 USD value and you’ll have plenty of space for your genealogy data including scanned photos and documents, research files and more.
Click here to enter and remember that the contest ends on 7 October 2014. Don’t forget that you can earn an additional entry in the contest when you send the contest page to a friend – just follow the instructions on the contest page!
The winner will be announced at 12pm CDT on Wednesday 8 October 2014.
