Taking advice from the forum and knowing about computr crashes from experience, I back up to two external  hard drives, periodically, especially family photos.

Also, have family photos printed at the commerical printers (I think their paper / ink is more longlasting than standard, am I right or wrong.

Probably wrong (in my case anyway). It depends on YOUR printer, paper, ink, and your skill level.

I think the cloud could be risky down the road (too many uncontrolable variables to trust as a stand alone backup). Maybe as a second backup.

For my sons to have in later years.

The cloud idea is good, but I am still trying to get used to the idea of having my stuff 'out there'.

.....Just from an amateur......''Sometimes it's to your advantage for people to think you're crazy.” I am only a hoobyist, I cannot and do not give expert advice, dont expect it, just take it as a suggestion to think about, but only if you wish to. We should try to not wait for life to happen, while it passes us by.
