This opinion piece written in the NY Times last month by historian Dr. Leslie Berlin is an interesting commentary on the issues faced by many when dealing with piecing together the digital life of a loved one. 

The piece highlighted that nearly everything from the past 20 years of her mother's life existed only online, unfortunately, aside from the mobile there was no record left and it took some time for the writer to gain access to her mother's digital records.  

It is another reminder of the growing need to make plans for your digital records and the benefits a platform like Ashfords Digital Legacy can provide.
