Hey, Paulie, why not consider taking your photoalbums to someone who can transfer them all to cd's. We have home video of our children when they were small and are transferring them over to DVD's for the same reason. Easier to store and grab in case of disaster. John, yes definitely invest in a fireproof safebox. It is well worth the investment, make sure you invest in one that has the highest level of heat resistance. An alternative is a bank deposit box but there is a monthly fee on those and a year's worth of payments would probably pay for your fireproof box.
