I tried to sign up for the mailing list, but the form was not present to register. Any suggestions?
This is an excellent idea. I had often wondered myself what would happen to my research once I pass beyond the veil. I'd like to think that my nephews, once I present to them what I have when I feel it is ready, would take up the mantle of being the family genealogists. Right now I have in mind that my eldest nephew could possibly be the one to carry the torch. My youngest nephew, I think is still too young to understand the importance.
I'm also thinking as I type this, that perhaps arranging for a historical society, or even having a professional genealogist continue the work might be an option. Basically, leave instructions that the descendants of my family be regularly updated, say on a sixth month to yearly basis, should none of my current family members be interested in doing the work themselves. A tall order I'm sure, but it could be possible correct?
Ben you have a most excellent idea! None of my children give a hoot about all the original photos or papers I have collected over the years. My sister has 2 kids but they don't care either and don't plan on having kids themselves. My one last hope is that one of my 2 granddaughters will carry on for me...but who can be sure?
Have you considered staring a group for this idea?
