Mostly, I don't, I just file a copy in my file cabinet (after accumulating
a big pile on my desk <g>). There are a few that I have transcribed to an
Exhibit and one or two that I have scanned into Exhibits. There are about
a dozen or so that I have selected a few lines to include in the Memo field
of the Will tag because the wording is intersting or some similar reason.
For example, my 3G-GF's will said (in part):
"To my son, William Hoffman, and my daughter, Margaret
Hanley (both of Mt Sterling, KY) $1.00 each. I do not leave
them more because I have already given them property in
Kentucky worth $2500.00 plus $2500.00 in bank notes plus
more, which is enough to keep them comfortable if they
take care of it, and too much if they don't."
I figure they took care of it -- William founded a bank and sold insurance
while his sister and her husband (a lawyer) also did well.
