Elgin Genealogical Society Newsletter 33:3 (September 2008) includes a “Genealogical Codicil to My Last Will and Testament.” If you’ve ever worried that your spouse / kids will toss years of your painstaking research into the dumpster before you’re grown completely cold to the touch, you may wish to consider adding such a codicil to your will. In it, you make your heirs aware of your estimation of the value of your genealogical research, and ask that they endeavor to find an individual or institution willing to give your treasures a good home. The one page document provides space to suggest specific individuals or institutions with whom you would prefer that your genealogical treasures be entrusted.
