Ask Before You Donate

If you are contemplating donating your "genealogical papers" to a library, historical society, or other facility, discuss this with them before you make the decision. Some organizations do not take donations of this type, may not have the facilities to maintain and preserve your collection, or may place serious restrictions upon its use. 

And others may not be able to take your material if you are simply looking for a free way to "have someone organize your stuff after you die."
