Saving AAGGMV Data

ATTENTION AAGGMV MEMBERS!!!! With the announcement of the discontinuance of their websites as of September 2014 AAGGMV needs to determine what data/information needs to be 'saved" from our AAGGMV website. We have information dating back to 2004 that includes, but is not limited to, Photos, PDF files, Address Book, Historical documnents, etc. Looking for suggestions on 1) what should we try to capture 2) where should the captured information be stored and 3) any other considerations. Please post comments/suggestions on the Discussion Forums section of this site.  (Website Commentary & Suggestion Topic)
