If you are not able to identify a family member that is interested that is the legacy of our family history we need to make plans for it's care once we are gone. Many opportunity exist outside of our family units to find a good home for our genealogies."

 Could you please clean this up a bit, SR, so that a person can understand what is being said? Sorry, but I can't make heads or tails out of these 2 paragraphs.... Thank you!

 @iam. What they are trying to say is this: if you have spent countless hours working on your family tree make sure to have someone who cares about genealogy have a copy before you die.  If no family member cares about it, donate it to a genealogical library or society.  Then it will be preserved for the future when someone may have a desire to see it.
