The Unitarian Universalist Association recommends putting church records on CD-ROM and storing multiple copies in several locations for greatest safety. All your financial record keeping and official church documents should be backed up on the computer, periodically. When the threat of a severe storm comes, the back up discs can be put in a bank vault.
