Q: Where can I go to learn to preserve values as well as valuables?

www.ethicalwill.com is a site which explains how ethical wills can be used to pass on values and family stories from one generation to the next.  Barry Baines, MD is the author of the book Ethical Wills which is an easy how-to book on the subject.  Estate planning can help you preserve values as well as valuables.  The references to canned trusts and wills in the book are not recommended as canned wills and trusts, because they don't address your unique needs, can cause more problems than they solve.  But, this book is great for getting started preserving memories and ideas that may be lost otherwise.
