Download Those Images

Download images of genealogical records as you find them. Do not assume that they will always be there or that you will always have access.

  • you may decide to cancel your subscription to that site
  • the site may use the ability to host the images
  • the image may get moved to where you can’t find it
  • you may forget how you got it in the first place

Once you download it, you have it. Back it up. File it in a way that you can find it again. Make certain the file name describes the image.
