Just a thought…

Don’t assume those websites that say they will host your images/data “forever” will be around forever. The digital world is littered with websites and companies that no longer exist.

FamilySearch is probably into preserving things for the long haul. Using online sites and preservation services is not bad, but just keep in mind that they may not preserve things as long as you think they will. Companies go out of business on a regular basis.
