Each generation of a family has its own stories to share and add to the collection of tales from previous generations that document its history and heritage.
A families stories come in many forms, from tall tales told around the holiday dinner table, to torn and tattered photographs, hand-written notes, and letters collected in a shoebox, to home-made movies and videos.
Passing stories from generation to generation is an essential element in helping to sustain a family’s heritage, culture, and legacy.
During your estate planning process, consider these aspects of your family’s stories:
