M-DISC the 1,000 year storage solution

I am pleased to announce my affiliation with Millenniata, Inc., the creators of an exciting digital storage product: The M-DISC™, the 1,000 year storage solution.

1,000 Year Disc? Really?

Yes, really. Here’s a video (in Polish) of an M-DISC being baked in a tray of lasagna and then cleaned off and it is completely accessible . . .

Visit http://www.mdisc.com/about/ to learn more about the M-DISC and how it can become part of sound archival practices for your family history research and preserving your family memories.

I will be providing Millenniata, Inc. with the high-quality analysis, evaluation, marketing, social media and business development services which I provide specifically for the genealogy and family history community of businesses and non-profit organizations.

I’m excited to share information as I can about the M-DISC product with the genealogy community . . . Stay tuned!

On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Nordic Family Genealogy Center will host a special lecture with Thomas MacEntee, nationally-known genealogy author, educator, and speaker.

Learn how to use the other 90%!

Reservations requested. Phone the Museum at 773.728.8111. For more information, please visit our website, www.SwedishAmericanMuseum.org/genealogy. You may also e-mail genealogy@samac.org.
