Planning Ahead

I know that in genealogy we are always planning, planning our research question, our research, for the repository; but as genealogists we need to be prepared for the the things we cannot plan for...


If you have taken a DNA test, you should designate someone, to inherit the responsibility of your DNA test results should something happen to you. Sometimes, this can be done directly on the test company's website. Otherwise, you can create a document in which to designate this person.


Certain genealogy software programs, offer to create a inheritance certificate, in which you designate an inheritor of your genealogical data. How about any papers and documents you have? What should be done with them? Where should they go?


If you have any questions or need assistance, contact Awes of Inheritance: Family History Services.
