Have an Interesting Story Involving a Will and Want to Share it?

Posted on: January 21st, 2009
I recently received the following email, and then had a phone conversation with its author.  This is a legitimate documentary, with filming to take place in Montreal over the course of the year.  All expenses for the trip to Montreal will be paid.  Feel free to contact me or Ms. Ouimet directly.  Click "Continue Reading" for the "looking for" message referred to by Ms. Ouimet.
 
Dear Mr. Herman-Giddens,
 
 
I’m a researcher working on a documentary series about people’s first-hand experiences with a family will. The project is being produced for a major US broadcaster.
I came across your blog and found your knowledge very inspiring. I was hoping you may have stories to share with me and perhaps help me get in touch with families having dealt with a difficult will story. We would also very much appreciate having you on board as our legal expert to help us make sense of all the legal complexities surrounding wills in your state. 
Our series explores various, unexpected family issues surrounding wills. We would like to showcase the powerful, true-life stories of family wills, in an effort to create a deeper awareness of the difficult subjects of legal wrangling, conflict, grief and deep-seeded dynamics that can often arise when the will of a loved one is read. 
We believe it will help others reach closure on their feelings concerning a past will, and help them make sense of their own experience with a will. 
 
Please feel free to share the "looking for" text pasted below with your clients or on your blog if you wish and/or deem it acceptable.
Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
 
Katherine

 Hello,
 I’m a researcher working on a documentary series about people’s first-hand experiences with a family will. The project is being produced for a major USbroadcaster.
 
The documentary explores various, unexpected family issues surrounding wills.

If you’re interested in helping others reach closure on their feelings concerning a past will, or want to make sense of your own experience with a will, I would be very interested to hear your personal story. Thank you very much for generously sharing your story with me. You can email me – Katherine – at: storiesthewill@gmail.com
