Do you plan to leave your genealogy records for use by others after your death? If so, what storage method will you use for the information?
Paper doesn't work too well. Today's acid-based paper will probably last only for fifty to one hundred years or so. Even worse, toner used by modern laser printers and photocopy machines will only last ten to twenty years even though the paper itself will last longer. Nobody will be able to read the paper documents if the toner has faded.
Archival quality paper with high-quality ink will last more than 100 years but such ink is not readily available for computer printers. Would you want to write your entire genealogy by hand? Using a fountain pen?
