Why is there a FREE Life Legacy Changing Forms Series among the Genedocs Featured Forms?



1. Death is as real as the life we live every day.  As surely as each breath we take occurs, one day it will all stop for every person on earth (and in space).

2. We really need tools to deal with the reality of death as it pertains to the most deeply impacting events on our family's life.

3.  I have used the emergency wallet card since death knocked on our door and welcomed our mother from this life to the next, followed by our father 4 months later, our maternal grand mother 2 months after that, and finally our maternal grandfather and last living ancestor 13 months later. 

.......In an emergency or after your next family member death, it is wise to have a card to help know who to call/notify, have key information that will be needed on hand, and have as identification for minor children not old enough to carry a driver's license.

4.  I have seen far too many people sitting in a funeral home without a clue about the vital statistics of a lost loved on that are required to get a death certificate which is the key to unlocking every much needed benefit after a death.

5.  I have drafted four family obituaries for my closest four ancestors and know the value of including pertinant genealogical data within that will apply to researchers generations from now.



6.  I have dealt with the pain of a lawsuit  and inheritance hijacking all stemming from when one family member over planned and their ancestor under planned and under communicated leaving your and your siblings a huge mess to try and straighten out on the worst days of your lives and know estate planning is about solutions not problems, financial planning is about future dreams not past bumblings, and your legacy is worrth fighting every day for whether it be millions of dollars or just one priceless ancestor's photo that dozens of cousins will be spending decades looking for.



7.  I know you love your family enough to want to leave the most loving an meaningful legacy you are able to.



IT is FREE so PLEASE USE IT AND SHARE IT!

Thanks to my Statistics Class, Planning a June Vacation, and a busy work schedule, I have clearly been a bit understandably derelect in my duty as a blogger.  I do apologize and now that Summer is here, I hope to manage a few more moments for this forum of Genedocs that several people really enjoy.

     Make no mistake, I took Genedocs and other projects with me on vacation and actually made some research headway like:


   - Locating my father and his family in the 1940 US Census covering Hot Springs, SD.

   - Working out new Genedocs Designs

   - Deciding on a long walk with my sister that it is about time Genedocs became a successful business(finally! - the time and effort invested in our best work needs to generate a worthwhile return on that investment) 

   - Playing my newer music on my brother-in-law's baby grand.


I also realize that the improvements made need collaboration with others to be brought to full fruition - like the necklace shared below by a female freind on facebook.  It is a great adaptation of the same concept the pocket photo pedigree was designed for - sharing generation of ancestors photos, yet, in necklace form, it clearly needs not be stored 95% of the time in your pocket, wallet or purse so bravo to the ladies helping me realize this legacy jewelry concept!
