Genealogical Codicil 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, including 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 or more persons who would be willing to take custody of
the said materials and the responsibility of maintaining and continuing the family
histories. (If you know whom within your family or friends are likely candidates to
accept these materials, please add the following at the point: “I suggest that the persons
contact regarding the assumption of the custody of these items include but not be limited
to,” and then list the names of those individuals at this point, with their addresses and
telephone numbers if known.)
In the event you do not find anyone to accept these materials, please contact the 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 organizations, addresses,
phone numbers, and contact persons if available, as well as state/national contact
information, addresses, and phone numbers.)
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.
