Those Websites are Not Permanent

Your newfound cousin hosts his own genealogy information on his own domain name. What happens to that domain name and information when he dies, stops paying the bill, or is unable to maintain the site?

Don’t assume what’s put online has been preserved.

And don’t assume that because you see it online today that it will be available in that same format on that same site in five years.
