Yup, Flash Drives are good for this purpose. I just don't consider them as a good safe place for my files nor a back up. But good for transferring files.
You are most welcome. Glad to be able to help.
"Thank you so much, Russ. I used to email my files as an attachment when I left one place for the other. It is now too big to do that so this year I tried the flash drive as a vehicle to move them.
You are the answer to an old lady's prayers…"

We had some fun with your very common ancestral research dilemma—inability to find what you seek. In order to reach your objective of finding origins across the water, you’ll need to first build the foundation in US records.
There is much more to seek & probably find!
This is our mission & vision: Since 1979, Lynell & I, Karl-Michael Sala, have found thousands of data, documents & images for thousands of ancestral family members for hundreds of clients! We were the very first two persons selected for the short-lived—but highly successful—Paid Expert Ancestry Research Line! Why? Because we usually found in just a few minutes data, documents & images that subscribers had been trying to find for the last 3 decades!
There is no charge for our initial research consultation. It is what we often do for others trying to find their European origins. Doing an initial free search (& usually a find) is how we share our talents with others.
We wish we could do everyone’s research for free, but this is just not economically feasible. So, if others cannot find their ancestors in online databases & image-bases—but know they are there (somewhere)—please call to discuss your case, but also email us full details.
As a service & a marketing test, we have seemingly located your Langensaltzbach.
There is more research to be done; however, there are no guarantees. That said, we have a 99% success ratio in locating new data, documents & images our clients did not have! If you like what you see & would like to get more, we'd like to now personally & professionally serve you by providing actual DIGITAL data, documents & images & more.
If you or any others would like cost-effective USA, Immigration or European research service, that will save you effort, time & money, please call & email me--a proven, 3-decade international ancestral genealogist.
If you'd like to see a copy of a stunning report for a client, that includes DIGITAL images of census, immigration (NY Passenger List), emigration (Hamburg Passenger List), & actual parish register entries from Tirschtiegel, Posen, Preussen (now Trzciel, Poznan, Poland) that are translated? That can be viewed by clicking on a link found on my GW Group: The German Genealogist. Yes, I can do much more than German. Call & email me all details on one target ancestor, spouse, children, parents, places of residence, i.e., whatever is known on that target ancestor:
