Planning a Future for Your Family's Past

Planning a Future for Your Family's Past

Old photos, ancestor stories, genealogical documents, and heirlooms reflect your family's past--and they should be safeguarded for tomorrow's descendants and researchers. Even if you have no obvious heirs for your genealogy collection, you can take steps today to protect and share information and items from your family history.

Follow the step-by-step PASS process outlined in this book: Prepare by organizing/analyzing your materials, Allocate ownership by curating your collection, Set up a genealogical "will" to designate heirs, and Share family history now. Includes sample forms, online resources, and practical advice for keeping genealogy safe, with future generations and future researchers in mind.
