Even without reading the blog, I'm sure the answer is YES, my family archive is ready for disaster. Still, I must read.

My family archive is a disaster! ;)

I had to take a look at the post you mentioned on condensing the entirety of the Civil War onto one chart. It put me in mind of the chart of Napoleon's march to Russia, which I first learned about via Edward Tufte, author of Beautiful Evidence. A great concept, this diagramming on one page--evidently with a significant history of its own.
