It is a sad fact but 20 or so years after we shuffle of this mortal coil most of us will be but a distant and rapidly fading memory. All the hours and effort we are now expending researching our ancestors will die with us unless we preserve it in some way in a form that our descendants can recognise and understand. If all we leave behind is a thick file containing some certificates, scribbled notes and perhaps some printouts of census records then chances are that this will be discarded along with most of the other ephemera that we have managed to accumulate along life’s highway.
