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.
