Addendum to Burial of George Henry Hughes and Mary Ann Storey Hughes

     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.

     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.
