The Memory Vessel
You are more likely to have your wishes respected if you spell out in a will or trust where you want your Lesbian materials to be preserved.
Please use the “What We Collect” Guidelines to prepare and organize your materials. If you have already organized your materials, you can include instructions in your estate documents as to the location where the materials should be donated. (Ultimately, the best way to ensure that your memorabilia, papers, etc. are preserved is for you to donate your materials during your lifetime.)
- Place a copy of the Deed of Gift(s) in the boxes along with the Memory Vessel Transfer Directive. This will make it much easier for your executor, friends, or family to handle the materials (and less likely to have them tossed in exasperation).
- To assist you with this process, Wanderground will send you copies of this directive and labels for the boxes upon request. [NOTE: we do not pay for the cost of transporting items.]
If you have not yet had the opportunity to prepare the items, you can create a directive based on the form attached and give it to those you trust to care for your memorabilia should you die or become incapacitated.
