If you use the cloud for storage, as I do to a certain extent (or even feel that you may need more online storage in the future), the more free space you have the better. Google is currently offering an increase of storage on Google Drive for simply checking your account security settings. By doing so you will go from 15gb to 17gb of free online storage. Sounds great to me and I have taken up the offer. It may provide you with needed extra space in the future for online storage of family history files.
The link below is to an article with links to a guide on researching your family tree online (PDF and ePub versions).
I don’t think too many people need to be reminded that genealogy isn’t free, neither is it cheap. This article comments on the cost of genealogy – perhaps you have a different view? Feel free to share your view in the comments – I’d be glad to read them.

Tracing our History is developing a set of tools for enhancing the ability of family members to trace our history together in a collaborative and interactive manner. To do this I am setting up channels and groups within various social networks and web applications. All of these tools and sites provide a plethora of free opportunities for family members to help make our family research more interesting, exciting and useful for all. Please consider joining one or all of these sites listed on the ‘Research Collaboration Features’ page at Tracing our History.
I have now set up two real time chat/file sharing possibilities via the collaboration page, with two different social networking sites (Pip.io and Micromobs). To get involved with either site or both you will need to join the site and the channel that I have set up (on each of the sites). You can find both sites via the link above or go directly to Pip.io and/or Micromobs at:
The Tracing our History channel at Pip.io can be found via the link below:
