Here is what I want to do:
- Record my memories somewhere they will last for the next 200 years (or as long as possible), so my posterity etc can get at them
- I'd prefer to use a digital format so they can be easily distributed and accessed (i.e., not just write in a book by hand because that's very difficult to make copies; only the person with the physical copy has access)
A FamilySearch Blog post suggested using some type of cloud storage. That's pretty good, but what guarantee do I have the company that provides the service will exist in 200 years? Or won't change their policy and refuse access? Or get hacked. (I suppose it's also possible the cloud servers could be destroyed too). Eg, I was using an iPhone app to record my stories for a while, and then the app got removed from the App Store after a few years (I managed to get a database dump of the data, but now it just sits on my computer).
I thought using FamilySearch's "Memories" would be a good fit: if it works well enough for storing my ancestors stories, it should work well enough for my own. Plus FamilySearch actually developed from the Utah Genealogical Society so it's been around for over a hundred years. Plus, they have the whole granite mountain vault for storing records right? (Not sure if FamilySearch Memories are backed up there though). So is using FamilySearch Memories the best chance at preserving my memories for the next 200+ years? Or what might be better?
