Always back up your files. Several years back, I purchased a years worth of access to British newspapers. There was years worth of the Hartlepool England newspapers. What fun! I downloaded so many family articles, changed the PDF into jpegs. Fortunately, I did use some in blogs because my computer crashed several months later and I lost it all. Lesson learned....back up your files. I am slowly trying to rebuild my UK Hughes data, which is what I lost.
A decade ago, on January 10, 2010, I blogged about my paternal great great grandparents death and burial. It was before my British newspaper subscription. It was a happy dance day when I found both obituaries.

Looking back through my blogs, it appears I never posted George Henry Hughes' death certificate.
Obituary and Death Certificate of Mary Ann Storey Hughes

Posting this blog secures these pieces of Hughes history in case the computer and external go belly up. I really need to look into saving my information to a cloud site.
