Major sections address the following areas: estate planning; estate and inheritance taxes; the importance of a will, trusts, and other alternatives to wills; guardianship and conservatorships; and the role of executors, administrators, and attorneys. Appended are a family estate planning inventory, an example of a simple will, the Craven Trust Document, and a list of common legal terms. (SBH)
