Preserve your Family
Your family information is stored at Family Echo in according with our Data Policies. You can also download your family in formats such as GEDCOM, FamilyScript and Dynamic HTML. For backup, burn these files to a CD, email them to other people or put them on your website. Always ensure you have permission from living people before sharing their details. A number of commercial databases invite you to submit your family for free:
Note that these sites charge others to access your information, and there is no guarantee that they will be around in the long term. The main alternative is FamilySearch, a huge archive run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), but be aware of the Mormon practice of baptism for the dead.
You will see this word mentioned a lot when researching. GEDCOM is a universal standard used to record family information,
A family GEDCOM file can be created (export) by all software. Once create, a GEDCOM file can be moved around like any other kind of file.
