Write a book, and send a copy to the nationl archives and the LDS Library.
Do a digital copy. Send it everywhere so the information is not lost.
For those who do not wish to submit to the LDS, there are some other very
good places to send a copy.
I would recommend that you consider the public libraries in the
counties/provinces where the family members lived, the Allen county public library, the
Clayton Genealogical Library in Houston, NEHGS library, the Newberry Library
in Chicago, and the New York Public Library. Even if your family didn't live
in those places, they might be handy for future researchers. Multiple,
widely scattered locations (in contrast to the local libraries which might be
inaccessible to many researchers) in major collections offer the best hope for
future researchers. WARNING: many do NOT accept CDs as (I am told) they are
not "guaranteed to maintain the software and hardware to read them." Which
brings up another option: there are several places which sell CDs of
genealogies on CD.
