How about to use cryptosteel, man?

Cryptosteel is the premier indestructible backup tool for optimal offline storage of private keys, passwords and wallet recovery seeds without any third-party involvement.

On the other hand, you can hold encrypted word file on your cloud drive (but don't forget password please).

I have a secured container created with Veracrypt a fork of Truecrypt. You can create as much as you need and recreate a new one if the previous one is out of space. Also, it's possible to select encryption alternative according to the performance of your machine. Some encryption methods take too much time to decrypt so it's better to test it before starting to use. You can have several copies of the container on multiple devices and secure them in secret places like a safe storage at yor office, house or a bank safe storage etc. It's also possible to encrypt a partition or a whole drive with Veracrypt.

In crypto me trust Smiley

Cryptosteel doesn't address the issues that were raised in the OP. It is just a way to store one backup piece. The OP were detailing some scenarios in which the backup is divided into parts and what happens when one of those parts is stolen or lost. Please read the OP (it is quite long) and please note that you would need a few cryptosteel backups to address all OP scenarios.

There are many ways to keep your 24 word phrase secure to avoid hacking and it depends on whichever one suits the individual. But I would prefer to get it saved in different  by partitions, e.g divide the words into 3-4-5 places either evenly or oddly and then keep them safe in different locations. A location I would prefer is  to have different emails which I don't use for any other thing online and save them their in different others.  E.g let's say your word phrase is 24, and you divide it into 6 places which is 4-4-4-4-4-4.
Now get emails : Yahoo mail, gmail, hotmail and co and send each 4 words alternately and make sure no mail has more than two phrase slot. With this, your wallet is free of hacking.

This method seems stressful but its really worth it. You have access to your wallet anywhere you go in the world in as much as you keep the passwords to the emails safe and different.

I think the safest storage of a phrase of 24 words - just write a phrase on a piece of paper and store it along with the documents. To date, it is dangerous to keep information on financial assets in media that are constantly connected to the Internet. Having a million dollars in a purse in ETH or BTC, I'll do a tattoo on my arm .... And seriously, there's absolutely no safe way to store 24 words of a phrase to restore a purse. Life constantly presents surprises, but I think it's necessary to take seriously things like security of keys and phrases from wallets with crypto coins. I myself am very interested in various ways to safely store important information. Therefore, I like this forum, that you can find all the answers here for any questions on the crypto-currency market.

Well, it is not a problem as long as somobody doesn't steal all your funds Smiley And you may not even know it, but somebody who had a minute access to your pc maybe have already copied the private keys and is just waiting for some time to pass so you will forget any coincidence leading you to him.

maybe you can write the phrase on your microsoft word, and print the details out on a paper.
safe your paper in the safest place like a deposit box. but if you want it simple, just safe it on your computer.

Actually I write it down in a place I know that no one would choose to look when looking for something like that and even if they find it they could never decipher it. Storing it on a phone or online is not an option. Storing your recovery phrase or private key online is a big mistake. You never know when some of these hackers will gain access to your account and use your information to steal the coins. Another risk is that you may loss access to these online accounts.

Can you please share what place you have in mind (or it would defeat the purpose?)

Also - if the place is that unlikely, as you portrait it, will your family know where to look for and how to read the information after you die?

It is very important that we keep our keys safe. In my case, I store mine in a flash drive so that it is easier for me to copy paste it than do it manually to avoid mistakes of the number or alphabet being encoded. And I also keep a hard copy of, I write it in 2 separate notebooks and keep it somewhere safe.

It's my safety. I bought a wallet and some altcoin BTC for cold storage. There's only one thing to make the deal on the market.

Thinking of being hacked is just overkill. You can simply keep your phrase on an email. I do make a unique email for every key that you make. My friends and my group have also started to copy this style and it is safe. Other thing is to print it on a piece of paper and laminate it and paste it in your wall, but you need to insert it on a group of words and place it on many group of number and you are the one who only know where it is.
Your strategy is so good. I think your way is more secured . I want to follow your strategy. It is also safe if it will be saved in a flashdrive and you keep it.
