MY GENEALOGICAL WILL
Genealogical Will to My Last Will and Testament
To my spouse, children, guardian, administrator and/or executor.
Upon my demise it is requested that you DO NOT dispose of any or all of my genealogical records, both those prepared personally by me and those records prepared by others, which may be in my possession. This includes but not limited to books, files, notebooks or computer programs for a period of two years.
During this time period, please attempt to identify one of 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 various genealogical organizations that I have been a member of and determine if they will accept some parts or all of my genealogical materials. List of organizations, addresses and phone numbers at bottom; include local chapters, with their addresses, phoned numbers and contact persons if available as well as state or national contact information and addresses.
Please remember that my genealogical endeavors consumed a great deal of time, travel and money. Therefore it is my desire that the products of these endeavors be allowed to continue in a manner that will make them available to others in the future.
