    This had me thinking beyond my earlier reply. Maybe instead of waiting until we are dead and hoping someone sends or gives all our work to societies, libraries, etc, we should go ahead and start sharing completed pieces of research to the appropriate places now. I know some county genealogical societies would appreciate small contributions to add to their collections. They or fellow researchers who use our work might even guide our research in new previously unknown directions which would be a win for both of us! Why wait until we are gone? Share now!

      Exactly. Waiting is the problem. And writing things up–even if not in the most polished fashion–can lead to new discoveries.

    I have some on computer, some in a notebook, some I have no clue as I am still trying to figure out what to do with it. In other words how do I preserve it and then what? I have a pillowsham with hand embroidery of early families & I think friends handwriting on it.
