Genealogy in Your Will

From Stephentown Genealogy

The following was sent by Eva Harris. She is one of the most thoughtful women. If you have often wondered what would happen to your research, etc., should something happen to you, you can use this form to at least give your family some guidance.

A Genealogical Codicil to My Last Will and Testament

To my spouse, children, or guardian. 

Upon my demise it is requested that you DO NOT dispose of any of my
Genealogical records, books, files, notebooks or computer programs for a
period of two years. During this time period, please attempt to find one or
more persons who would be willing to take custody of the said materials and
the responsibility of maintaining and continuing the family histories. In 
the event you do not find anyone to accept these materials, please contact
 the genealogical organizations that I have been a member of to determine if 
they will accept some parts or all of my genealogical materials. [List of
 organizations and addresses at bottom.] Please remember that my
 genealogical endeavors consumed a great deal of time, travel, and money.
 Therefore please do not ignore my requests.
