It is good to know that you have covered long term of your websites in your estate - that was left to speculation previously, and I did not speculate on that either.
And today, while you visible sites are online (last I looked) any public library or Christian research organization could surely read on sites and run smack into your general copy prohibition. The historical 2x2 documentation you have collected tirelessly is really not under legal copyright, but most people will abide by your fake copy prohibition anyway. And since websites are not secure online beyond the moment and die die over time, Scholars will seldom quote from online sites even if there is open invitation to take copy.
Let me put it this way, dear lady - if I go onto an operating TTT website, ignore the fake copyright on 2x2 historical documents and select/copy the page contents to paste into a word processor, the entire appearance of the document changes uncontrolably and your wensite source identification will not easily copy/paste into a word processor without a lot of work - it would need to be added manually even the graphics. And to put that 'stollen' copy into hard copy for Scholarly quotability would not appeal to Scholars. AND you would lose all control over that document as to content, accuracy, completeness etc. etc. etc.
Now in honor of what you have said on this board regarding your minimal technical skills with both computers and websites, you may be unaware that PDF print software reproduces exactly what is on a page on screen, graphics and all. And PDF files can also be secured so that tampering with content is not possible - they are like a printed book, from which a Scholar might well quote. The text is in digital text, the graphics in graphic formats and the appearance of the opened PDF are exactly - I say again, exactly what is on screen.
Using a PDF printer software (there are several free ones and one very expensive one in the Acrobat software package I think. To use a PDF printer software is as simple as printing to paper but the PDF printer must be enabled in place of a paper printer in your control panel.
As it is on your websites, all that collected 2x2 documentation is still UNUSABLE to Scholars, even as it is un an operating website for the moment.
You may not have read this on VIA's blog before it too was taken down, but VIA stated that VIA's software had become so old and insecure that the website was hacked the day they took it down (and that hack was the reason they took it offline in old age. And once CRI and Collage or public libraries have the PDFs of the whole VIA site, the historical documents contained (and secured) in those PDFs are USABLE to Scholars - as usable as printed books.
Please don't let you minor technical skills wipe of all your work - even if you have willed the websites to one or several persons, it is their decision to make regarding whether they would do the technical work needed to keep those websites updated, secure from hacking etc. And THAT you have no ability to force through your will. VIA went into unsecure state because VIA's team would not hire a technician after VOT's voluntary technician (without any warning wiped) VOT offline in a split second.
Your websites are only as secure as your trusted hired technician keeps them. And even them they can suddenly disappear from software glitching either on the service provider's of the website software ends, causing a lot of technical work to recover them.
But if you do not really care if today's 2x2 children's children have your historical documents available, you are welcome to ignore all technical advise. It is your decision.
I know one poster here has openly challenged your fake copyright on those historical documents stating that he/she is almost finished copying TTT -- if he/she is doing copy/paste cpying or just trying to get a reise out of you, unless he/dhe has technical savvy of substantial quatity, and copy that he/she is taking is very likely completely unusable anyway.
You might not like my posts, and I really don't care if you like them or not. It is what it is at this moment.
