I am not familiar if this topic has been shared, or discussed in this forum, but felt it may be of interest to some of you as you are researching your families and viewing obituaries whenever possible. Our newspaper just featured an article on preparing your OWN obituary, so others don't have to. More of a last gift to your family and friends, so they don't have too at such a stressful time. obitkit.com is the site, and obviously this is a kit that is for sale. I don't own it, and haven't delved into it very thoroughly, but find it interesting just the same. There are also links on this site, to ancestry.com, amongst others.
I am only posting this as a, "For what it is worth," but felt it may be of interest to some and also may have some interesting suggestions and links for researchers and those celebrating life.
