I have lots of family info from various people on here... etc...that I would like to keep in one place; where can I store it on here ?

I do not think you can

However, I store all my information in a database on my computer and then this is also stored on an external harddrive.

So I have all my family photos (1000's) scanned (and hard copies in boxes etc). All my BMDs scanned and saved. And written stories and comments also stored this way.

My tree is not on here but on another Genealogy site (which I prefer for my London/Lancashire ancestors) most of this info is also held on there, but my tree is private and cannot be accessed, even through Mundia.

What type(s) of 'info'?

If it's text you could probably C&P in into the Note's section of the person if it's large enough. For pictures and documents, then you could upload them to the keepsafe and attach.

I don't like to rely on an on-line site and much prefer to having an off line tree with everything noted or attached to that.

If you don't want one, you could create folders on your computer and store the various documents in that under each named person. Definately back it up either on an external hard drive, CD or thumb drive. 'The Cloud' is the newest storage innovation if you were that way inclinded!
