Doesn’t already backup my tree regularly?

Of course we do.

The backups on are created strictly as a precaution against technical problems on or for maintenance purposes.

Backups from the Backup Service are different. They are stored separately on for extra protection and redundancy.

The backup service backs up each tree on your family site plus photos once a month and keeps a record of all the backups ever created for your trees.

You can access these backups at any time from your family site under the Family tree tab in the Backups section. Each month a separate backup is created so if you need to restore a tree, two months back or more, the information is there.

Email notifications are sent immediately after a backup is ready with a link to download.
