Even if you have no obvious heirs for your genealogy collection, this presentation will offer ideas for paths forward. Learn about the PASS process for organizing and storing family history materials with today and tomorrow in mind; curating your collection to keep key items while finding new homes for other items; writing a "genealogical will" to safeguard your collection for the future; and sharing your family's history now, before joining your ancestors.
